News: Decline in sat-nav sales - John Lewis pull PNDs from shelves

pocketgpsworld.com
With sales of dedicated in-car sat-nav plummeting, high street retailer John Lewis has taken the decision to stop stocking them in-store.

Smartphone navigation has become the norm for most users and many more cars now have competent built-in navigation so it's perhaps not a surprise that sales of dedicated portable navigation devices such as those from TomTom and Garmin have been hard hit.

Once the must-have accessory, the rise of the smartphone with its vast array of free and paid for navigation applications, and the prevalence of factory fit systems means dedicated devices are no longer sought after.

So now they sit at the top of one list their manufacturers would not wish to be on, the list of items being "left behind" in John Lewis's 2017 annual retail report.

News: Broadcom Smartphone GPS Chip Claims 30cm Accuracy

pocketgpsworld.com
Broadcom have recently announced a new GPS chip designed for smartphones with an accuracy of up to 30cm (12 inches). While this level of accuracy is rarely needed for smartphone navigation it will certainly have it's benefits. At present satellites and GPS receivers use the 'L1' signal which is prone to bouncing off buildings causing time delays and therefore poor signals in city centres and other built up areas. A smaller number of satellites can use 'L5' signals which are less prone to the time delays caused by reflected signals and therefore can give more accurate locations in built up areas.

Broadcom's new chip, the BCM47755, is able to make use of the 'L5' signal and has been specifically designed to use low power for use in smartphones. The company say that some 2018 smartphones will contain their chip. Time will tell just how much of a difference it will make in real world situations - but any improvement is better than none.
