How does GPS tracking work?
The Global Positioning System functions as follows:
The GPS Receiver receives signals transmitted from orbiting GPS Satellites. Once these satellite transmissions are received by the GPS Receiver, crucial information such as location, direction, and speed are then calculated. A GPS Receiver generally requires transmissions from at least three GPS Satellites before effectively determining the correct position. (The term for the technique to calculate distance is: Trilateration.) GPS Receivers then measure the time delays between transmissions and reception of radio signals from each GPS Satellite.
