In an experimental setting, the only navigation system that was evaluated, BrailleNote GPS, combined with a special technique the authors defined as geotracking, was found to have a significant effect on locating targets, even relatively small objects.
Geotracking provides the operator with precise information about where the equipment is currently positioned, while the telematics element provides details of where, and for how long, it has been used.
Both Alltel and Communications Development rely heavily on geotracking, or geotargeting, which is a feature that allows companies to see what parts of the world, country, state or county their Internet advertising is reaching most effectively through a user's Internet Protocol address.

Two experiments were conducted to determine the participants' accuracy in locating targets using a BGPS and the geotracking technique.
The GPS-geotracking training was considered complete when we were satisfied that the participants understood the concepts of locating waypoints using clock-face directions from the BGPS and geotracking, which, as was described earlier, refers to the ability to localize a target using the BGPS after the device speaks the initial "arrived" notice.
Since Experiment 1 demonstrated that the participants were highly successful in locating a 25-foot-diameter circle, the next logical question appeared to be how accurately someone could use geotracking and the BGPS.
The findings of the first evaluation study that reported users' ability to locate targets accurately using a technique known as Geotracking will be reported in a subsequent issue of the Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (Ponchillia et al.
