Europe's satellite-navigation system has taken a big step forward with the signing of new industrial contracts.

Is it a GPS? Infodia Mobile Data Terminal by [email protected][_2_]
http://www.lazygranch.com/temp/infodia1.jpg http://www.lazygranch.com/temp/infodia2.jpg I got this at a flea market. The company appears to be defunct. It may be a GPS with some other functions since it has a SMA on the back, presumably for the external antenna. Any information on the device would be appreciated.

Garmin City Navigator North America NT 2010 review by [email protected]
So far it seems to be an improvement. It was easy to install too, unlike my past adventures with Garmin's unlock codes. The NT seems to take up a lot less space on the memory than did my old non-nt 2007 City Select map. Garmin is being very coy with the update year on the package. No place does it say 2010, so people won't know if they are buying a 2009 or 2010, and so I guess so they can...

External antenna voltage drop idea by [email protected][_2_]
I've had a trimble 16248-50 sitting on the shelf for a while. Voltage specs are in this document: http://www.rdrelectronics.com/skip/feb/tans.pdf Basically 3.5V to 4.5V. I acquired a Trimble Thunderbolt 10MHz reference box which provides 5V for the external antenna. It seems to me I could just insert a diode in the path and get the voltage to be compatible. Any idea if this would work and what...

COM port issue with TOPO! by [email protected]
I bought a GlobalSat BU-353 Water-Proof USB Mouse GPS Receiver and plugged it into my Windows XP Pro desktop. I started the TOPO software and everything works. I can show current position and track. I am happy with the receiver as it connects very quickly and easily picks up the weak signals from inside my office. Since the desktop isn't going anywhere, I then connected it to my Windows XP Pro...

Synthetic Aperture GPS Signal Processing by Mike Jr
http://www.insidegnss.com/auto/mayjune09-soloviev.pdf I found this article fascinating. Synthetic aperture techniques have been applied to imaging radars since at least the 1980's when NASA flew one on the space shuttle. The concept is simple. Effectively, a series of observations are combined just as if they had all been made simultaneously from a very large antenna; this process creates a...

European Court of Auditors Lambastes Galileo Satellite NavigationProgram by HIPAR
