They have been playing an important role in providing necessary services efficiently with the use of Global Positioning System (GPS). When it comes to vehicle servicing, the problems faced by the users still remain especially in case of emergency breakdown mostly in finding the nearest services available. Consequently, this gives the encouragement to come out with a solution, which would help users ease their process of solving such problems.
