Must be accurate GPS navigation software?


With the development of GPS technology, our mobile phones and cars are installed GPS navigation system, we can use mobile phone, or navigation equipment for our car navigation, but the navigation route must be accurate? Our mobile phone can download GPS navigation software, and the GPS function of our mobile phone can realize the positioning and navigation functions well.

As far as we are concerned, GPS navigation is very accurate because I haven't encountered GPS navigation to make my route wrong. I still believe in mobile phone and car GPS navigation system. But a recent news story in the United States gave me some confusion.

Why is there such an accident? I think it might be that the driver used GPS navigation software not to be too precise in navigation, or to position the frozen lake as a road? Near or is someone using the car GPS jammer device, the interference device is interfere with GPS signal, and then let the GPS navigation software cannot be very good to complete the navigation function, then there will be such an accident, the result is really about?

Police in the us state of vermont have said that a driver in the northeastern state of vermont has driven a car into a lake because of his blind faith in GPS navigation software, foreign media reported Friday. It is reported that the site is located in the northeastern state of burlington, when the driver follow straight after the instruction of GPS navigation software, borrowed the jeep directly into a frozen lake, auto sliding on the ice ice is broken, and after a period of the jeep, in addition to the rest of the rear bumper all fell into the lake.

GPS provides convenience also may pose threat.

Police said the driver was not drinking or taking drugs at the time of the incident, which was heavy with heavy rain and light fog.

"I was speechless," the driver said. "my first reaction was that everyone was safe." Two people were on board, but no one was injured in the incident. The jeep is now out of the river.

It is believed that the driver was using a navigation software called Waze from Google, which uses the user's data to find alternate routes for users to avoid traffic jams and cameras.

Google spokesman Julie Mossler said that Waze maps are updated millions of times a day to adapt to real-time traffic conditions and to be as precise and practical as possible. Mothle also warned drivers to "look at the road and use all environmental information in order to make the best decisions."
