What is GPS?

Global Positioning System technology uses mapping to show you where you are and how to get there. But now, people can also use GPS to decide where they should go – what restaurants, shops and parks lie ahead. This enhanced technology provides new opportunities to market businesses and communities.

Why GPS?

GPS devices, mobile phones and online maps guide visitors to points of interest in your community. GPS units are selling at a rate of 200,000 per month. An estimated 78 million people worldwide will be using GPS by the end of 2010. That number could jump to over a billion, because GPS chips are being imbedded in mobile phones and laptop computers. A third (34%) of buyers of GPS devices earn between $100,000 and $150,000 annually. About 45% make $75,000 or more.

GPS Study: Walmart Top US Destination; Md. Drivers Use It Most

New Global Positioning System (GPS) data released today by GPS-navigation provider TeleNav offers a number of insights into the behaviors–and preferences–of U.S. drivers.

The data, collected randomly from millions of U.S. TeleNav users throughout 2009, suggests American drivers are most frequently searching for big-box retailers like Walmart and Target, as well as a quick caffeine fix via Starbucks. And on a state-level, residents of Maryland are by far the most frequent users of GPS for navigation.

TeleNav customers employ the service via mobile applications for popular smartphones like Apple’s iPhone and Research In Motion’s (RIM) BlackBerry, as well as via standalone GPS navigation units, like TeleNav’s Shotgun.

The top “states” for GPS-based navigation in 2009 were Maryland, Washington, D.C., Massachusetts, North Carolina and California, according to TeleNav. In fact, Maryland residents used TeleNav for twice as many trips per month than the national average, according to the company.

TeleNav says its users conduct millions of GPS-based searches a month. The leading U.S. city-areas for GPS-searches were Los Angeles, Dallas/Forth Worth, Chicago, Houston and Atlanta.

And Americans are using TeleNav frequently to help find popular retailers; the most sought-after U.S. businesses in 2009 were Walmart, Starbucks, Target, Best Buy and Bank of America.

Additional noteworthy data includes the most frequently searched for types of food–Pizza in Chicago and Chinese in New York; along with the cities in which drivers most often used GPS to avoid traffic and locate the cheapest fuel–Los Angeles and Phoenix, respectively.
