GPS for Everyone

GPS seems to have come out of nowhere. . . one day we were driving around clueless of where we were with paper roadmaps that couldn't be folded back neatly once opened, and suddenly an amiable female voice came out of the dashboard offering directions to our destinations. Actually, GPS is based on simple ideas that have been around for centuries. In his new popular book on the subject, GNSS engineer and textbook author Pratap Misra traces the history and development of this essential positioning, navigation and timing technology now embedded in modern day life.
