About GPS

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is

operated by the government of the United

States, which is solely responsible for its

accuracy and maintenance. The accuracy

of location data can be affected by

adjustments to GPS satellites made by the

United States government and is subject

to change with the United States

Department of Defense civil GPS policy and

the Federal Radionavigation Plan.

Accuracy can also be affected by poor

satellite geometry. Availability and

quality of GPS signals may be affected by

your location, buildings, natural

obstacles, and weather conditions. GPS

signals may not be available inside

buildings or underground and may be

impaired by materials such as concrete

and metal.
GPS should not be used for precise

location measurement, and you should

never rely solely on location data from the

GPS receiver and cellular radio networks

for positioning or navigation.
The trip meter has limited accuracy, and

rounding errors may occur. Accuracy can

also be affected by availability and quality

of GPS signals.
The coordinates in the GPS are expressed

using the international WGS-84

coordinate system. The availability of the

coordinates may vary by region.
