This paper presents a new global positioning system (GPS)-based routing protocol, called location-based point-to-point adaptive routing (LPAR) for mobile ad hoc net- works. This protocol utilises a 3-state route discovery strat- egy in a point-to-point manner to reduce routing overhead while maximising throughput in medium to large mobile ad hoc networks. In LPAR, data transmission is adaptable to changing network conditions. This is achieved by using a pri- mary and a secondary data forwarding strategy to transfer data from the source to the destination when the condition of the route is changed during data transmission. A simulation study is performed to compare the performance of LPAR with a number of different exisiting routing algorithms. Our results indicate that LPAR produces less overhead than other sim- ulated routing strategies, while maintains high levels of throughput.
