New GPS accurate to 3.2 feet?

by GPS4US 2013-09-10 15:37

Thanks to new efforts in South Korea, your driving GPS may be getting a lot more accurate in the coming years.

The country has created technology that improves GPS accuracy to a mere 3.2 feet. It’s called differential GPS (DGPS) and it could be available as early as 2014.

Currently, conventional GPS gives you your location within 121 feet, but DGPS could drastically change that.

"The start of the DGPS service for the public will significantly improve the accuracy of conventional location services that use the global navigation satellite system, such as personal navigation systems, which will also become a new growth engine for the related industry," ministry official Lim Hyeon-cheol told reporters.

Currently, DGPS is mainly used on fishing boats and by 790 different organizations. But new technology allows users to use it in their personal navigation devices by switching the GPS chip with a multipurpose chip.
