Benefits

Besides safety, GPS receivers provide increased recreational benefits for outdoor enthusiasts and navigational benefits for shipping. These handheld units can tell you your current location; can track your course, direction, and speed; and can help you reach chosen destinations. The Meridian Platinum has seven navigation displays that include a map screen, compass screen, speedometer, and text displays for heading, bearing, speed, direction, and estimated time of arrival. Additionally, a satellite status screen provides information on the satellites that are in view, their location relative to your position, and their relative signal strength.

The number of different screen displays are of great benefit to suit a variety of usage scenarios. For example, if you’re boating and have a receiver mounted to your boat, the large data screen display type can provide essential information such as heading, bearing, speed, and distance in a large font for easy viewing. The speedometer screen can be useful for a road style display with a speedometer and a graphical road that actually turns when you need to make a change in direction. Most of these screens are customizable so that you can have the positional information you need added to any of these screen styles.
