How GPS works Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

GPS satellites circle the Earth twice a day in a precise orbit. Each satellite transmits a unique signal and orbital parameters that allow GPS devices to decode and compute the precise location of the satellite. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensGPS receivers use this information and tri lateration to calculate a user’s exact location. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensEssentially, the GPS receiver measures the distance to each satellite by the amount of time it takes to receive a transmitted signal. With distance measurements from a few more satellites, the receiver can determine a user’s position and display it electronically to measure your running routemap a golf coursefind a way home or adventure anywhere.

Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensTo calculate your 2-D position (latitude and longitude) and track movement, a GPS receiver must be locked on to the signal of at least 3 satellites. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensWith 4 or more satellites in view, the receiver can determine your 3-D position (latitude, longitude and altitude). Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensGenerally, a GPS receiver will track 8 or more satellites, but that depends on the time of day and where you are on the earth. Some devices can do all of that from your wrist. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

How accurate is GPS? Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensToday’s GPS receivers are extremely accurate, thanks to their parallel multi-channel design. Our receivers are quick to lock onto satellites when first turned on. They maintain a tracking lock in dense tree-cover or in urban settings with tall buildings. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensCertain atmospheric factors and other error sources can affect the accuracy of GPS receivers. Garmin GPS receivers are typically accurate to within 10 meters. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensAccuracy is even better on the water.

Some Garmin GPS receiver accuracy is improved with WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System). Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensThis capability can improve accuracy to better than 3 meters, by providing corrections to the atmosphere. No additional equipment or fees are required to take advantage of WAAS satellites. Users can also get better accuracy with Differential GPS (DGPS), which corrects GPS distances to within an average of 1 to 3 meters. The U.S. Coast Guard operates the most common DGPS correction service, consisting of a network of towers that receive GPS signals and transmit a corrected signal by beacon transmitters. In order to get the corrected signal, users must have a differential beacon receiver and beacon antenna in addition to their GPS. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

Other GPS Systems Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensThere are other similar systems to GPS in the world, which are all classified as the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). GLONASS is a satellite constellation system built by Russia. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensThe European Space Agency is creating Galileo, while China is creating BeiDou. Most Garmin receivers track both GLONASS and GPS, and some even track BeiDou. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensYou can expect a more reliable solution when you track more satellites. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensYou could be tracking nearly 20 with newer Garmin products. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

What’s the signal? Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

GPS satellites transmit at least 2 low-power radio signals. The signals travel by line of sight, meaning they will pass through clouds, glass and plastic but will not go through most solid objects, such as buildings and mountains. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensHowever, modern receivers are more sensitive and can usually track through houses. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

A GPS signal contains 3 different types of information: Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens

  • Pseudorandom code Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah Gardensis an I.D. code that identifies which satellite is transmitting information. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensYou can see which satellites you are getting signals from on your device’s satellite page. Audio surveillance Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Ephemeris dataHidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah Gardensis needed to determine a satellite’s position and gives important information about the health of a satellite, current date and time. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Almanac data Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah Gardenstells the GPS receiver where each GPS satellite should be at any time throughout the day and shows the orbital information for that satellite and every other satellite in the system.

Factors that can affect GPS signal and accuracy include the following:

  • Ionosphere and troposphere delays:Satellite signals slow as they pass through the atmosphere. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensThe GPS system uses a built-in model to partially correct for this type of error. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Signal multipath:The GPS signal may reflect off objects such as tall buildings or large rock surfaces before it reaches the receiver, which will increase the travel time of the signal and cause errors. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Receiver clock errors:A receiver’s built-in clock may have slight timing errors because it is less accurate than the atomic clocks on GPS satellites. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Orbital errors:The satellite’s reported location may not be accurate. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Number of satellites visible:The more satellites a GPS receiver can “see,” the better the accuracy. When a signal is blocked, you may get position errors or possibly no position reading at all. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensGPS units typically will not work underwater or underground, but new high-sensitivity receivers are able to track some signals when inside buildings or under tree-cover. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Satellite geometry/shading:Satellite signals are more effective when satellites are located at wide angles relative to each other, rather than in a line or tight grouping. Audio surveillance  Miami Beach Hialeah Gardens
  • Selective availability:The U.S. Department of Defense once applied Selective Availability (SA) to satellites, making signals less accurate in order to keep ‘enemies’ from using highly accurate GPS signals. Hidden surveillance camera system Miami Beach Hialeah GardensThe government turned off SA in May of 2000, which improved the accuracy of civilian GPS receivers.
