Using a handheld GPS Device without Internet Data

Using a handheld GPS Device without Internet Data

You have your Android Portable Handheld GPS device and you intend using it. Of course, with WIFI, you can use it to do almost anything, but the moment you step away from the connection, there is no data for GPS. It is a normal thing for maps and voice guidance not to work without data.

Well, there is certainly a solution to this challenge. Well, it known that offline maps are installed on the SD card, therefore you do not need an internet connection for navigation. Once it is installed, you just need to download the turn by turn voice guide in your own language.

One popular map that you can use if you want to travel is Google maps. This app usually is on every device with an Android OS and so you have the chance to save the particulars are zoomed in the map when you are traveling. Google allows you save about 6 large map areas when using it offline. All you have to be sure of is that you have saved the maps for offline use. You would have used WIFI connection to start the GPS and when the device would have gathered enough information, it can guide you properly to your destination even if you do not have internet connection during that period. However, there are cases of Google maps not properly navigating one to their destination if it wasn’t started when connected to data or WIFI. In such cases, you should start the navigation process at home when connected to data or WIFI and then take your device to your car.

There are other apps that can do this as well such as the iGO primo app. This app allows you navigate without data or WIFI connection. It is a GPS Navigation app with street view and offline map which properly guides you without the connecting to the internet since the maps are saved to the internal storage in the portable GPS device or its SD card. You have the opportunity to download maps needed for your trip alone. This will prevent your device memory from getting filled up quickly while making use of your device. There is the option of downloading the maps needed at any time and deleting the unused ones.

Everything about GPS System

Everything about GPS System

What is GPS?

GPS is the acronym for Global Positioning System which is a satellite-based navigation system comprising of about 24 satellites. It is able to work under any weather conditions, in any part of the world, throughout the day without subscription or setup charges. Satellites are put into orbit for military use by the U.S. Department of Defense (USDOD) although they were available for civilian use in the 80s.


How GPS works

GPS satellites usually revolve around the Earth two times a day in a particular orbit with each satellite transmitting unique and orbital parameters allowing GPS devices decode and calculate the precise location of the satellite. This information and trilateration are used by receivers for calculating their exact location. In short, the receiver measures the distance to each satellite by the amount of time a transmitted signal is received. The receiver is able to determine a user’s position and display it electronically with distance measurements from some more satellites.

If you are trying to calculate your 2-D position (i.e. longitude and latitude) and track movement, the GPS receiver has to be locked onto at least 3 satellites’ signals. To determine your 3-D position (i.e. longitude, latitude, and altitude), 4 or more satellites would be needed. A GPS receiver normally can track 8 or more satellite but this depends on which time of the day and your location on the earth.

When your position is determined, the GPS unit will be able to calculate other information like Sunrise and sunset, distance to your destination, trip distance, track, bearing, and speed.


Accuracy of GPS

GPS receivers of today are very accurate due to their parallel multi-channel design. Receivers lock onto satellites quickly when the device is turned on and maintain a tracking lock in dense tree cover or in urban settings with tall buildings.  The accuracy of GPS receivers can be affected by factors like weather and other error sources.


What’s the signal?

GPS satellites transmit a minimum of 2 low-power radio signals which travel by line of sight which means they can pass through clouds, plastic, and glass but won’t go through most solid objects like mountains and buildings. However, there are modern receivers that can track through houses because they are more sensitive.

There are 3 types of information that a GPS signal has:

  1. Almanac data – this tells the GPS receiver where each of the GPS satellite should be at any time of the day and shows the orbital information of the satellite and other satellite in the system.
  2. Ephemeris data – this is used for determining a satellite’s position and gives vital information about a satellite’s health, current time and date.
  3. Pseudorandom code – this is an I.D. code for identifying which satellite is transmitting information. You get to see which of the satellites you are getting their signals on your device’s satellite page.


GPS Signal Error Sources

There are several factors that affect the signal and accuracy of GPS which include:

  1. Satellite Geometry/shading – Signals of satellites are more effective whenever the satellites are at wide angles relative to each other instead of in a line or tight grouping.
  2. Orbital errors – The satellites reported may not be relatively accurate.
  3. Signal multipath – GPS signals may reflect off solid objects like tall buildings or large mountains before it gets to the receiver which increases its travel time and may cause errors.
  4. Receiver clock errors – The built-in clock of a receiver may have a slight timing error because it is not totally accurate than the atomic clocks on GPS satellites.
  5. Ionosphere and troposphere delays – Satellite signals slow down when they pass through the atmosphere. However, the GPS system has a built-in model which corrects this error partially.
  6. Number of visible satellite – The accuracy of the receiver depends on a higher number of satellites it sees. If a signal is blocked you may get position errors or even no position reading at all. Normally, GPS units do not work underground or underwater but receivers of today which are high-sensitivity can track some signals in such places.

How to get better accuracy for your handheld GPS device?

how to get better accuracy for GPS

Inexpensive handheld GPS receivers are of great use to any person who likes outdoor activities. However, there are several factors affecting their accuracy and we will look into the necessary steps that will help you achieve better accuracy with the handheld GPS receiver.


First method: Improving positioning

  1. Check the owner’s manual to know the type of antenna your GPS has

Antenna positioning is very important for accuracy, therefore, it is necessary to understand the type of antenna your GPS device has. Usually, there are two types – patch and quadrifilar helix antennas. While one is built into the device, there other is external so make sure you point the antenna (irrespective of the type) to the sky.

  1. Move away from any form of obstructions

For the fact that GPS relies heavily on satellite data, it is very important to ensure there are no obstructions between the signal and your device. When you are trying to lock down your position with your device, ensure you are away from skyscraper, tunnel, deep valley and other artificial obstructions which can block or reflect the signal, thus altering its accuracy. The aim is for your device to be in view of as many satellites at once as possible as well as getting a clear signal.

  1. Orient the patch antenna well

There are several designs given to GPS antennas which would give you a good signal from a particular positioning. The chances are that you have a patch antenna in your receiver (this can be confirmed from the manual). To get the best signal, it is ideal to hold your GPS flat with a patch antenna.

  1. Orient the quadrifilar helix antenna

If your antenna type is the quadrifilar helix antenna, then you need to hold your GPS erect.

  1. Move away from under cross wires net

It will happen electromagnetic shielding if you are standing under cross wiress net, then your gps device will not receive any satellite signal. So it is ideal to let your device away from cross wire net, usually, 3 meter is ok for gps device.

  1. Turn and face different directions

Whenever you are in an open field with your handheld GPS device properly positioned, the only way to improve accuracy is turning and facing various directions so as to increase the number of satellites in view. The higher the number of satellites “seeing” your device the better and faster your GPS receiver provides accurate information.



Second Method: Using Averaging

  1. Put on “position averaging”

With this feature, your GPS can take measurements about once every second and therefore calculate an average position before it is saved in the receiver’s memory of the GPS device. It is essential especially if you are pinpointing a particular location. Three minutes of averaging is enough to provide sufficient measurements for improving your position’s accuracy.

  1. Adjust average setting in order to get more points

If you are within an obstructed location, you will need more data for pinpointing your location more accurately. Therefore, if your device is collecting just 2-3 points (coordinates), it is better to set it to 20. The longer you stay still and gather more data, the better the accuracy.

  1. Make sure to stand still during the averaging

If you are moving too fast while collecting points, then your accuracy could get worse. If you are standing under a tree canopy or in any other location with obstruction, then be patient enough to get more data in order for your reading position to be accurate.

  1. Use manual waypoint averaging

Instead of making use of an averaging feature on your device, you can record your waypoint (i.e. your fixed position) coordinates during the course of several days and average them by adding up the last numbers of the coordinates your recorded and dividing by the total number of readings (the times you recorded all the coordinates).

How to Improve Driving Safety and Convenience Via Car Alarms, GPS, and More

When you want top-notch safety features and convenience for your car, a mobile car electronics expert can help you. Find out how these pros can add features like an integrated GPS navigation system or a backup camera to make your car even safer than it is already.

Usually, we spend a lot of time looking for the car that’s exactly right for us. But, sometimes, we compromise on a feature here or there in order to stay within a certain budget, or because the features we’re looking for simply aren’t available in the cars we are considering. Mobile car electronics pros are familiar with these situations and can help you get the vehicle of your dreams by adding on features that your car lacks. Find out how your local mobile car electronics expert can help improve your car’s safety and its functionality. Whether you want an in-dash car navigation GPS to make business travel easier or a remote starter to simplify your morning commute, your area mobile electronics specialist is available to assist you.

In some cases, adding mobile electronics components to your car is a way to make your life a little easier. Take a remote starter, for example. This is a device that allows you to start your car from afar with the click of a button. To some people, this sounds like overkill. However, for anyone who lives in a chilly climate and has to remember to go outside to start the car well before they need to leave, a remote starter is a very good idea. Instead of bundling up, going outside, then going back inside to finish getting ready, you can complete that job with one little click. A remote starter is one of the many mobile electronics devices that help your car work better for you.

GPS satellite Navigation systems also fall into this category. How many times have you gotten into the car only to realize that you have forgotten to get directions to where you’re going? Even if you have directions, trying to read a map or follow a written list of where to turn, what road to look for, and how far to go is difficult and potentially dangerous, since it takes your eyes away from the road. In-dash GPS systems eliminate the need to memorize or follow complicated directions off a piece of paper. Instead, you can glance down to your dashboard to see where to go next or follow voice prompts that help keep you on track. Not only is this a more convenient way to travel, but, as discussed, it can also contribute to your overall safety when you’re in the car.

Like a navigation system, a reverse camera also functions as both a convenience- and safety-oriented feature. Many vehicles these days are very large and are difficult to see behind. Reverse cameras help make these, or any vehicle, much safer on the road, since they allow drivers to see what’s behind them easily and clearly. This makes backing up simpler and makes the process safer when parking car for everyone.

Car backup camera

Parking sensor system is another one car electronics device that can be used for parking car.They are proximity sensors for road vehicles designed to alert the driver to obstacles while parking. These systems use either electromagnetic or ultrasonic sensors. Help to prevent dangerous and costly collisions, enhance the safety features.And it help to provide increased safety for passengers, pedestrians and family members who happen to be around the moving vehicle.

A car alarm is another aftermarket mobile electronics device that can be considered a safety feature. When you park, there’s only so much you can do to ensure your vehicle’s safety while you’re away. You can park correctly and you can choose a well-lit or familiar area, but that’s about it. A car alarm essentially takes over for you safety-wise while you’re gone. If someone tries to damage or abscond with the car (or anything in it), the alarm will go off. This alerts you, and anyone else around, that there’s a problem, and, in many cases, will spook and scare off the intruder.

Car TPMS(tire-pressure monitoring system) is an car electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside the pneumatic tires on various types of vehicles. TPMS report real-time tire-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light. TPMS are provided both at an OEM (factory) level as well as an aftermarket solution. Its target is prevent puncture and damage of car parts caused by the flat tire. Improve fuel efficiency, prolong tire life, increase traffic safety and avoid abnormal wear of vehicle parts.LCD screen displays tire pressure and temperature simultaneously.  Support visual and audio alarm, air leakage alarm, overproof tire pressure and temperature alarm.

Car OBD On-board diagnostics is an automotive term referring to a vehicle’s self-diagnostic and reporting capability. OBD systems give the vehicle owner or repair technician access to the status of the various vehicle subsystems. It is a sort of computer which monitors emissions, mileage, speed, and other useful data. OBD-II is connected to the Check Engine light, which illuminates when the system detects a problem. Depending on the problem, the light either stays on, flashes, or goes away entirely. Mechanics can use scan tools to make sense of the diagnostic trouble codes, but with the right equipment and some technical know-how, you can too. You can even collect data on other aspects of your vehicle’s performance.

When it comes to both safety and convenience, mobile car electronics devices like car GPS systems, backup cameras or other car accessories can take your car to the next level. Contact your local mobile electronics professional to find out how they can help make your car as safe and as functional as possible.
