ABSTRACT
This article presents an interview with Oliver Leisten, chief technology officer of antenna design and manufacturing firm, Sarantel Ltd. To a question on the fastest growing products using their antennas he said it was the personal navigation devices. These are multi-function PDAs with integrated Global Positioning System (GPS). They're portable, so they can be taken from vehicle to vehicle and don't pose the theft risk that built-in navigation systems do. About GPS embedded in mobile phones Leisten said it's happening more slowly than predicted by the industry.
