Mobium GPS Navigation System Frequently Asked Questions(FAQS)
Q: Which counties are covered by Mobium GPS?

A: Mobium GPS currently provides turn-by-turn navigation for the US and Canada only.

Q:

What is GPS?

A: GPS (Global Positioning System) is a navigation technology that provides precise time and location anywhere, anytime and under any atmospheric conditions, by using the NAVSTAR satellites. The 24 satellites that make up the GPS space segment are orbiting the earth about 12,000 miles above us. They are constantly moving, making two complete orbits in less than 24 hours. These satellites are travelling at speeds of roughly 7,000 miles an hour. GPS satellites are powered by solar energy. They have backup batteries onboard to keep them running in the event of a solar eclipse, when there's no solar power. Small rocket boosters on each satellite keep them flying in the correct path.
Q: How does GPS work?
A: GPS is a satellite-based navigation system that works by receiving navigation messages from satellites and calculating locations. GPS receivers locate the satellites transmitting the incoming signals and use CDMA (Code Division Multi Access) method to identify individual codes. This means GPS system is able to identify each satellite's unique ID to calculate precise location and navigational data. Here are the steps:
 
  • All satellites have clocks set to exactly the same time
  • All satellites know their exact position from data sent to them from the systems controllers
  • Each satellite transmits its position and a time signal
  • The signals travel to the receiver delayed by distance traveled
  • The differences in distance traveled mark each satellite appear to have a different time
  • The receiver calculates its own position.
