Welcome to Navaids

NAVAIDS is an Australian company that deals almost exclusively with GPS (Global Positioning System). We sell and hire Recreation GPS units and Survey grade Differential GPS (DGPS) receivers. Recreation GPS receivers are from Garmin. Survey grade DGPS units are from Ashtech, Hemisphere and Navcom.

Navaid is short for Navigation Aid, a term used widely in the Maritime and Aviation Industries. The premier electronic navaid today is the GPS receiver, which is now a common utility used for a diverse range of applications. More information on the Global Positioning System can be found at our GPS Information page.

We have been in business since February 1995 providing GPS equipment and services to exploration and mining companies, government departments and the general public. With our hands on experience and knowledge of GPS we can provide the best GPS to suit your requirements.

Navaids provide consultants for projects that require accurate GPS surveys and we have worked with many Mining and Engineering companies both in Australia and internationally. We can collaborate on projects offering our equipment and expertise, or similarly we can carry out the GPS survey. More on our company and field services in the 'About Us' page and our affiliate company 'Down Under Surveys'.
