GPS Saving Lives

December 31st, 2005

snowmobilers-saved-by-GPS 2005 almost ended in tragedy in Salt lake city when a group of snowmobilers were lost in the Wasatch County mountains–as a storm came in suddenly, disorienting them and wiping out their tracks. The extreme weather conditions forced Wasatch County Sherriffs Office to temporarily call off their search. Emergency help soon arrived after one of the snowmobilers realized he had GPS coordinates on his cell phone. The four survivors were lost in an area known as Tower Mountain in the Uinta National Forest about 15 miles east of Heber City.

GPS Monitoring and Tracking for Criminals

December 30th, 2005

More and more lately we are witnessing how GPS technology like GPS Tracking and GPS Monitoring offers much needed solutions to make our society safer and more livable. NavigatorGPS applauds Republican State Senator Brent E. Steele from Indiana for drafting a law requiring convicted sex offenders to submit to lifelong GPS monitoring. The Indiana bill would require convicted child molesters to wear a Global Positioning System (GPS) device following their release from prison.

On the other hand, Marc Mauer, executive director of The Sentencing Project, a Washington-based criminal justice think tank, believes that while some chronic child abusers may need prolonged supervision, others may maintain a spotless record after leaving prison. While there are other lawmakers that hold positions similar to this questioning the necessity for the bill and its implications for civil rights despite the fact that “even abusers will tell you that once you’re a pedophile, you’re always a pedophile,” as Senator Brent E. Steele commented.

NavigatorGPS believes that Steele’s legislative efforts should be supported, this is an opportunity to put GPS technology and navigation sytems to great use to improve law enforcement and thus protect our society from criminals. NavigatorGPS calls on all sectors of the political system to support Steele–this is one issue that ought to be supported across the political spectrum regardless if you are a liberal or conservative.

C330-Garmin-StreetPilot

I don’t know why but I still ask my wife, even if I think I’m 90% sure of where I’m driving, ‘Do I take a left or a right here?’ I guess it’s because if I’m driving around and make a mistake I need somebody to blame besides myself! So, if I haven’t been in a particular area for a while, I ask. When she says left she means right and visa versa, and what’s worse, I listen to her instruction and take the right turn — I mean the wrong turn! It’s easy to blame our spouses sometimes, but not all the time, particularly these days when we have GPS units like the Garmin StreetPilot c330 GPS Vehicle Navigator.

For those of you who prefer touch screen, and that’s a lot of us StreetPilot c330 by Garmin (Garmin StreetPilot c330 GPS Vehicle Navigator ) is the preferred choice. I found Garmin c330 to be a piece of cake to set up without the hassle of map loading. For many of us that’s the litmus test-if getting started is quick and easy or a major pain. Here, c330 GPS was a synch along with the fact that most of the maps most of require are already pre-loaded.

After the fast, simple installation, Garmin StreetPilot c330 was already saving me from asking my wife which way was right! I shouldn’t be so critical I guess, because I realized quickly (with the help of the c330) she was giving me fantastic, super accurate, turn-by-turn driving instructions using the Garmin GPS unit’s automatic route calculation.

For someone who despises anything too complicated and wants a GPS device that is super easy friendly to use and straightforward, Garmin StreetPilot c330 is perfect. If you are one of those folks who don’t like buttons and switches Garmin c330 only has a rotary volume knob and an on/off switch. Left and right aside, with the StreetPilotc330 Vehicle Navigator, I don’t hesitate with taking lefts nor rights much these days, I feel like the luckiest pilot on the planet with my wife as the expert navigator beside me.
