The worldwide market for global positioning system devices (GPS) is set to reach almost 6 million units in 2005 according to US market research company Computer Economics.
This compares with about 1.6 million units sold this year. Computer Economics estimates that the number of GPS devices sold each year will increase at an average rate of 1.37 million units every two years from 1999 to 2005.
“The sales of global positioning devices will increase steadily, coinciding with the growth and expanded coverage of wireless technology,” said Computer Economics senior analyst Michael Erbschloe.
Some GPS systems may experience problems later this year as the GPS satellite system resets its clocks and can cause navigation errors in older GPS systems.
