About Johnny Appleseed GPS

GPS is making a big impact. From locations of endangered species, to logging the positions of roads and access, and scientific farm and crop applications. The largest economic impact is through the use of in-car navigation, with savings in fuel and time. Recreational pursuits such as camping and boating are big winners with GPS. Aviators find GPS a useful back up for route planning and log books.
