From the Back Cover:

No other guide helps you navigate the Global Positioning System [GPS]like this one--with the latest applications for air, surface, and marine travel. This third edition of the Aviator's Guide to GPS is the essential sourcebook of current equipment and applications for the world's most precise, satellite-driven navigation system. Instrumentation, positioning accuracy, regulations, and the latest forms of alternative radio navigation are discussed--as is the fascinating history of the system's development by the Pentagon. The book covers this global navigational system in an easy-to-read, fully illustrated format that gives practical, hands-on pointers on: familiarizing yourself with NAVSTAR, LORAN-C, and all civilian applications of GPS; consumer advice on purchasing GPS-friendly equipment such as specialized receivers and digital instrumentation; marine navigation, land positioning, surveying, mapping, and personal safety. The author also outlines the continually evolving improvements GPS brings to modern aviation: more direct routing, precision airport apporaches, decreased congestion, and safely increasing the number of aircraft that can use a given airspace. No other book on the market handles GPS as thoroughly and practically as this one. Tap the full potential of the world's premier positioning system with the Aviator's Guide to GPS!
