GPS (Global Positioning System) is the triangulation of locations using satellites.
1. Create running and biking routes based on elevation.
There's a huge difference between a flat run and a hilly run. GPS lets you track elevation and build a workout routine that more accurately reflects the energy being expended.
2. "Drop a pin" or take a screenshot of your GPS position to prevent getting lost in huge parking lots.
3. Geotag your photos and display your travel photography on a map.
4. Connect a small tracking beacon to items that matter most to you.
5. Pre-program locations you frequently visit in your GPS to save time.
6. Go on a geo-treasure hunt.
7. Leave your destinations at the right time.
8. Incorporate GPS into your wardrobe.
9. Track your pets with a GPS collar.
10. Understand sports better with GPS mapping and GPS-enabled balls.
11. Stay on top of your friends' locations.
Technology like Find My Friends and other apps lets you track the locations of people in your network the same way you track an Uber cab.
You can use these apps to easily split off from friends and reconnect when wandering around a city or at a crowded music festival. And don't worry, you can easily turn the tracking on and off as needed.
