GPS stands for Global Positioning System, which is the system of satellites orbiting the Earth that transmit temporal and geographical information. GPS tracking devices use the data transmitted from satellites to display their current geographical position and map out directions to other areas. Tracking devices also come in pocket-sized versions, and some are solar-powered. These solar-powered mini trackers can come in handy for people who love to hike and use the outdoors.
