Navigation Devices

Overview of mobile navigation devices, there are various devices for mobile navigation. All navigation devices use GPS.

Fall into this category of mobile digital assistant (short: MDA) ), the personal digital assistant (short: PDA), a PDA with built-in mobile or Smartphones (“translated: smart phones”). If these devices as navigation device use, you must find out what software and what additional components are needed.

As a source of information, the Internet provides good services here. In corresponding specialty forums you can enjoy the experience of other users, are already using the device as a navigation system. With integrated GPS, PDAs or MDAs are less recommended. Such devices rely mostly on the use of certain navigation software that is already installed by the device manufacturer. A large number of smart phones, the user must also must purchase the navigation software to the device and install. Especially when using in the car a worse reception than products reflected frequently in navigation devices n with built-in GPS receiver with an external GPS receiver.

LTE Fares – When The First Presented?

So far, still no details about the possible rates are known. A major concern of many people is to use the Internet quickly and securely. Speeds achieved today, are more than passable. Almost nationwide is also a good covered by UMTS network given. But now there seems here to be a changing of the guard in the near future.

The 4th generation of mobile telephony, the LTE, could appear on the German market already 2011. Long term evolution presented are the network providers all over the world as a promising technology. First field tests were conducted in the United States, East Asia and here in Europe in Scandinavia. This could under laboratory conditions”to achieve up to 300 Mbit / s data transfer rates. These can be naturally not in practical use. Is calculated at rates of 150-170 MB / s.

The cost for the LTE could move in the healthy part. This read the 4 major German operators (T-mobile, Vodafone, O2 and – Plus) also a sum of 4.4 billion to invest. So much achieved the frequency allocation by the Federal Network Agency. Because the existing UMTS network can be used, the LTE tariffs should bring pleasant surprises. The UMTS networks must be only modified and partially renewed. The central theme of the LTE is the mobility. This will bring many benefits for the user. So, not only the residents of remote regions will be the Profitteure.
