    GPS what type of signal is this?

    I always wonder what type of signal is GPS? Is it radio, direct short wave or IR or anything.

    I always thought I have to point my device towards the sky, buy some navigation device was installed in the middle of the car and also some handheld device can get readings indoor.

    It's satellite. The ones that are installed in the middle of a car need to have a view of the sky or an external antenna with a view of the sky.
