Before telling the GPS function operation ,let’s think about few questions below :
What would you do if you get lost with your friends at a wild adventure ? What would you do if you have no idea about where you are and the compass doesn’t work ?
So the most important thing would be telling the location information coordinate to get in touch. And well here that wouldn’t be better if you have our RT8 GPS function radio and let’s see how to set about it .
