The GPS found in DayZ

Slot: Tool

The GPS is a handheld Global Positioning System that allows players to locate their position on the Map within a set of grid coordinates.

The GPS has a built-in Map that can be viewed by pressing the 'M' key (default).

The GPS allows the player to pinpoint their location in Chernarus, and also provides information on the direction they are facing and their elevation relative to sea level.

The default binding for bringing the GPS up onto the heads-up display (HUD) is Ctrl + M.

The GPS is rare equipment that has a 0.45% chance of spawning in Military loot spawns, a 0.41% chance for Barracks and does not spawn in Deer Stands.


  • The GPS also has a built-in Map. This allows players to have both the information of a GPS, plus the information of a Map, without actually having a Map.
