Node Location information may reduce the overall communication overhead for packet forwarding in Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs). This paper proposes a novel Geographic Location Aware Adaptive Routing (GLAAR) protocol to reduce the computation and communication requirement for selection of next node (hop) for packet forwarding. Proposed protocol fetches the node location information using GPS and follows the robust, adaptive and efficient routing algorithm to ensure communication occurs with minimum no's of hops and computations.
