There are rare cases when even the best GPS navigators may be affected by electromagnetic distortion and provide erroneous information to the user. It is good practice to keep a topographic map of the area in the glove box and know how to read a map. 

If you are not sure how to read a map do not follow GPS device blindly and double check with someone who could explain the basics of map orientation before you head outdoors into the unknown terrain.

For large GPS systems like oceanic marine command centers which often use Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN) GPS chartplotters and transducers, or avionic navigational command centers the reliability and precision of the GPS coordinates is even of higher importance as lives of many people could be at risk if GPS data may be incorrect.GLONASS GPS satellite

One way to improve the quality of GPS data is to integrate GLONASS and GPS signals in the GPS receiver by employing the Galileo capable GPS chip and having both GPS and GLONASS connectivity allows your GPS wristwatch or hand-held GPS navigator receive signals from 33% (percent) more satellites than ordinary GPS.

It is still a question if the leading GPS technology research centers and manufacturers will add the GLONASS plus GPS universal receiver in their newest devices like eTrex 30 and Rino 655t. There optimistic hopes among GPS users community that the GLONASS and GPS integration capability will be added preferably out of the box, or as just a matter of downloading the new firmware update to enable the Galileo integrated GPS coverage.

We will stay tuned to the announcement of the innovated feature. Hopefully new GPS navigation devices may enjoy reliable signals coming from more than 4 satellites, like 6 or 8 satellites simultaneously which will keep us, GPS users safer and finding the best ways in the complex terrain.
