Have the GCA & GC apps but seldom actually use them. Your comments indicate I'd have to load caches & maps onto my mobile if they were in remote areas so will have to investigate how to do that. I broke my wonderful Magellan 710 & have lost interest in caching as a result. It did everything without fuss. I will look at using the apps on my mobile as navigators with the new H/H to guide me to GZ but will have to change my 20th century phone plan. Thanks.


A number caching apps can load offline maps and PQ's, that how I cache with GDAK, offline maps and about 5000 caches at my fingertips.

If anyone thinks that this may no cover all of Australia or be a passing phase, it turns out the Australian government is spending money on base stations to augmentation the new systems (including Galileo) to the tune of $64 million.

I have in the past turned my nose up at this sort of 'small' spending but with this detail to looks like they are on the right track, lets see how it pans out.

Can anybody explain to me how this will work? A better way of tower triangulation?

That bit confused me to. I guess it means they'll be using satellite internet for places where cell phones don't work?

Otherwise it sounds like they a building a network of government owned RTK base stations (as opposed to all the privately owned and run ones around the country at the moment). Which might mean the correction signals will now be provided for free? Or it might mean that are going to 'unify' the base station to GPS receiver communications by putting it all on the internet (either via cell phone or satellite internet). This would remove the need for a purpose built radio receiver to receive these signals. (although the GPS receiver would still need to be capable of handling the corrections - where ever they may come from)
