CHAPTER 8 USING GPS NAVIGATION
The MC67 includes Global Positioning System (GPS) technology. GPS technology is based on a worldwide
system of GPS satellites orbiting the earth that continuously transmit digital radio signals. These radio signals
contain data on the satellites’ locations and their exact clock time and are used to determine the user location
on the earth.
Third-party GPS navigation software is required. Evaluation software is available from various suppliers. For
example; VisualGPS, visit: http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPSce/
If interested in purchasing GPS navigation software check with the GPS software vendor (before purchasing,
downloading, or installing any software) to determine that the application is compatible with the MC67. Refer to
the application’s user guide for application installation and setup information.
