In today’s day and age, technology is all the rage. The newest phones, tablets and laptops are the nation’s biggest sellers. The most overlooked gadget is Vehicle Navigation Systems. The GPS works off of a satellite-based global positioning system. The U.S. Department of Defense placed this network of 24 satellites into orbit. Signals bounce off of these signals allowing navigational systems the ability to detect our whereabouts at any given moment.

I know what you are thinking? I don’t need car navigation or a GPS. I have my tablet; I have Google maps on my cell phone; and for the traditional – I have my map!!!

The fact of the matter is, You Do. According to research studies conducted by Marc Whitehead & Associates, a personal injury firm here in Texas, on average there are over 6 million car accidents in the United States every year and more than 3 million people are injured due to car accidents; 2 million of these injuries are permanent. There are over 40,000 deaths due to car accidents every year. People between the ages of 15-24 are most severely affected by car accidents. The nations car accident rate continues to increase.

Individuals driving while attempting to navigate through their phones and tablets are increasingly at risk. Laws are continually being developed to ban the use of hand held devices while operating a car. Have you ever lost battery life or the cell phone signal in the middle of attempting to navigate to an important meeting or date? I’m not even going to get into attempting to hold a physical map while operating a car!! You can avoid all these pitfalls by making a wise investment into a navigational system.
