Definition Edit

A GPS receiver is an electronic device that receives signals from three or four satellites. The receiver compares the time the signal was transmitted from each satellite with the time it was received. The time difference tells the receiver how far away the satellite is. Using the distance measurements from multiple satellites, the receiver can determine the user's position.
