Some Garmin GPS receiver accuracy is improved with WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System).  Voice recorder online purchase Miami Beach Coral Gables This 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.  Voice recorder online purchase Miami Beach Coral Gables

How GPS works  Voice recorder online purchase Miami Beach Coral GablesGPS 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.  Voice recorder online purchase Miami Beach Coral Gables GPS receivers use this information and tri lateration to calculate a user’s exact location.  Voice recorder online purchase Miami Beach Coral Gables Essentially, the GPS receiver measures the distance to each satellite by the amount of time it takes to receive a transmitted signal.
