GPS or Global Positioning System is a U.S. space-based radio navigation system that provides reliable positioning, navigation, and timing services to civilian users on a continuous worldwide basis. The Portable GPS Receivers that can be easily hand held, nicely installed by the speedometer of a motor bike or mounted handsomely on a dashboard of a car calculate its position by precisely timing the signals sent by the GPS satellites that remain relatively stationary high above the Earth.
The GPS satellite network maintained by the US government provides accurate location and time information for an unlimited number of people in all weather, day and night, anywhere in the world. Necessary software and digital maps ought to be installed in the GSP Receiver which operates by calculating the position by precisely timing the signals sent by the navigation satellites of our planet.
For GPS Navigation in Sri Lanka the GPS mapping was developed by Sala GIS, a unit of electronics retailer Sala Enterprises, based on the maps produced by Survey Department of Sri Lanka, the oldest Government Department in Sri Lanka, that was established on 2nd August 1800. Survey Department of Sri Lanka offers topographical maps covering the entire island, ranging in scale from 1:250,000 to 1:10,000 as well as detailed town maps.
Sala has prepared all digital maps incorporating all the main roads and by-roads in Sri Lanka and in line with the Sri Lanka’s traffic laws. While the hardware (the machine- GSP Receiver) is from China, the software was developed in Russia.
Portable Multimedia navigation system: search, locate and reach the most remote beach, nearest restaurant or wherever you are on the go. Possibilities are infinite. Sala ProSat is operational in every nook and corner in Sri Lanka including the Sinharaja Tropical Rain Forest (hidden in most areas with a thick canopy cover), a World Heritage Site. Over 100,000 landmarks, places of interest, police stations, fuel sheds, banks, hospitals, hotels, parks and places of worship have already been pre-programmed on the Sala ProSat GPS. The GPS Navigation System provides turn by turn guidance for traveling to any place along a shortest or fastest route: it plots the shortest and fastest route, and find almost any location in Sri Lanka.
