Abstract:- -Vehicle navigation is one of the most important applications in the era of navigation which is mostly used by drivers. Therefore the efficiency of the maps given to the drivers has a great importance in the navigation system. In this paper we proposed a very efficient system which uses the GPS and earth maps to help the driver in navigation by robust display of the current position of the vehicle on a displayed map. The main aim of this project is designing a system which is capable of continuous monitoring of path of the vehicle on PC with Google Earth Application. Here the important issue is displaying the map on several various scales which are adopted by the users. The heart elements in the implementation of this project are GPS, GSM and MCU. The GPS-GSM integrated structure is designed to track the vehicles by using Google earth application. The micro controller is used to receive data from GPS and to transfer the latitude and longitude to the PC to map by using the VB.Net language and this map is generated using Google Earth information.
