To develop a routing protocol and optimize routing paths in mobile ad hoc networks is the challenge process. Routing has become one of the most suitable routing strategies in wireless mobile ad hoc network mainly due to its scalability. In periodic broadcasting of beacon packet send to their neighboring nodes at an equal interval of time that beacon packet contain the nodes present location. In this process it will increase the update cost and performance of the router low. Adaptive Position Update (APU) strategy which dynamically adjusts frequency of position updates based mobility of nodes and forwarding pattern in the network.
