NavIC is in news these days because of the phones getting released that supports it.

Let us understand what is NavIC?

  • Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System.
  • Developed by ISRO.
  • Operational Name: Navigation with Indian Constellation.
  • Phones with compatible chipsets will use NavIC as the first preference before using GPS.
  • It is a regional navigational system. Only works 1,500 km (930 mi) around India.
