The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite navigational system that was originally created by the U.S. Department of Defense. A network of eighteen satellites was initially launched into space with six allocated to three different orbital planes. Today, the system has 29 active satellites that create reference points, enabling geographical positions to be calculated within several meters of accuracy.

Business travelers can easily incorporate GTX Corp.’s GPS technology into their lives by incorporating the patent-pending hereIM™ software into a compatible smartphone. The software actually switches the smartphone from a one-way GPS receiver into a two-way receiver and transmitter. By enabling this function, businesses are able to pinpoint the user’s position. hereIM™ also enables navigation and mapping, as well as the ability to receive traffic and weather updates. Installing the GTX software onto a phone can also add an extra level of comfort to family when a loved one travels for a living.

Those who lead an active lifestyle can also easily benefit from the company’s technology. But being on a hiking trail, on the ski slopes, and in rivers can destroy even the hardiest of cell phones. The company’s GTX Wearable Caddy is a buoyant, waterproof, and shockproof device that is built to withstand the rigorous antics of sports enthusiasts. The caddy is made to be as light and unobtrusive as a carabiner, which most athletes use to secure water bottles to bags and backpacks.

GTX has a Personal Location Services (PLS) platform that syncs with its products 24/7. The system is able to provide real-time geographic coordinates on any of its devices, rendering locations on Google Maps via secure Internet connections. GTX continues to develop products that enable everyday people to add an extra level of security and functuality into their lives.
