- The ability to give instructions.
Today, a standard GPS can give the user’s addresses to their destination.

Some receivers can also decide for the user that the route has less traffic so that it reaches its destination faster than if it had taken its usual route.
- The ability to guide you to the petrol station, restaurant, or any other general location.
If the user needs fuel for his car, he can just get into his GPS the question “where is the nearest petrol station? “And he’ll be driven there. It is almost the same procedure if the user wants to go to the nearest hospital, police station, restaurant, or any other general place where the user has to go.
Now that we have discussed the basic features of a GPS, here are the places where people can buy one:
- Electronics Stores
Most, if not all, electronics stores sell GPS. These stores usually sell the best quality receivers with some models that have additional gadgets thrown in the package, but the high quality comes with a high price. Some GPS models sold in electronics stores are quite expensive, so it is not advisable for one on a limited budget to buy a GPS here.
The Internet is a great place to buy a GPS. You can compare the models, look at the reviews, and check the prices with a single click. Shopping on the Internet eliminates the waste of time and effort to go to the store and wondering what others think about the GPS they are planning to buy, among other tasks.
- Some supermarkets
GPS has reached a strong demand that large supermarket chains have started to sell in all their establishments. Although it is very tempting for one to buy your GPS here as it is convenient and he can buy it while doing his shopping at the same time, he should think twice before buying here as the GPS units sold in supermarkets are usually low Quality and break easily.
These are just the basic features and places where you get a GPS receiver. A lot of models have additional features built into them that can really enhance the day-to-day travel experience of their user.
