GPS is Global Positioning System, or a series of satellites in earth orbit which (when used with a portable reciever, available now commercially in many stores) can precisely determine your position on the "globe". This can also be used to measure speed, such as on a train when you are curious just how fast you're moving.

gps - gps
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a group of 27 Earth-orbiting satellites (24 in operation and three extras in case one fails). When people talk about a ”GPS," they usually mean a GPS receiver. The U.S. military developed and implemented this satellite network as a military navigation system, but now lets everyone use the signals.
