GPS = Global Positioning System (as in, how do I get from here to there?)

GPRS = General Packet Radio Service (a type of wireless network)

Two entirely different things.

It depends. Do you walk to school or carry your lunch?

(Hint: they are two entirely different things - unrelated to each other)...
