Abstract

This thesis is about Navigation System Using GPS in which to conduct
comparative study on different GPS platforms on Windows Mobile 5 PDA, Palm OS
PDA, notebook and GPS60CS and to evaluate user acceptance of replacing paper-based
map with the digital map based on effectiveness, ease of use and efficiency.
Traditionally, people use paper-based map as the only navigation tool despite the
drawbacks such as people find it difficult to locate themselves in an unfamiliar area, map
will not be updated frequently and they tend to getting lost while traveling. Therefore, the
Navigation System Using GPS on four different platforms are presented as the solution to
this problem. As for the methodology, several phases are involved such as data
collection, planning, analysis, design, installation and configuration and finally testing.
As for the testing, 20 respondents were involved in using the both paper-based map and
digital map. For paper-based map use, only two of them managed to reach the
destination. For digital map using GPS on the other hand, all respondents managed to
reach the destination. From the questionnaire provided, it was found that all respondents
prefer digital map to paper-based map and they stated that the digital; map is more
practical, effective and easy to handle. From this result, we can conclude that digital map
is plausible to replace paper-based map in which Windows Mobile PDA with GPS is the
most suitable for normal use and GPS60CS for adventurous use.
