Most familiar is the mountable GPS for marine and land navigational use. Don't get stuck up these two uses as being the primary use for GPS, they once were, but now with the introduction of new non-mountable GPS they have taken a back seat to the new recreational uses.

The collars are relatively inexpensive for the services they offer. Along with the GPS collar the new innovative GPS chip have give allowed several parents to be at ease when it comes to their children's where-a-bouts. Small children can give parents the biggest scare of their life if they were to wonder off, with the new GPS technology there is no need to worry. The chip can pin point a child to within 3 meters!

As far as recreational use, the newer, more portable, handheld GPS have offered hobbyists a variety of new activities to partake in. One of the fastest growing hobbies/sports in the world is geocaching. This is basically a world wide treasure hunt. Using a handheld GPS one can go online and get clues and waypoints to a hidden treasure in the area. It really has taken the GPS community by storm.
