In this paper, the authors propose designing of the Global Positioning System (GPS) in a very simple and efficient way for navigation, positioning and tracking. This system is designed to provide information about location based services along with the emergency services. The presented GPS based hand held terminal is designed using hardware components like Microcontroller 89C52 and GM 48 GPS receiver. They can carry this handy device anywhere there is no need to connect it to PC all the time for tracking.
