Dead Reckoning is the method used for calculating one's position based on the last known position. Dead Reckoning systems use direction and speed estimates to calculate the location. This is one of the primary and oldest methods of navigation, and is used in many modern day navigation systems, specially when they lose satellite reception. Dead Reckoning was the method used by Columbus for exploration.
