News: TomTom Traffic Improved

pocketgpsworld.com
TomTom have announced a number of major enhancements to its TomTom Traffic service. At the same time, they have announced the availability of TomTom Traffic in Indonesia and Slovenia.

The enhancements include Turn-Dependent Jam Information, Dynamic Speed Limit Messages, Weather Influenced Predictions and Road Condition Monitoring after Rain or Snow. The improvements will be rolled out to users from April.

The Turn-Dependent Jam Information automatically detects the different 'turn dependent traffic situations at junctions and enables the navigation system to only take into account jams specific to the driver’s turn intention on their specific route.

TomTom Traffic will automatically monitor roads with variable speed signs and display them to the driver. The weather monitoring is self explanatory, route calculations will take weather into account to improve the accuracy of information and delays.

News: GPS Timing Error Causes Widespread Disruption

pocketgpsworld.com
An error in the timing signal broadcast by the US GPS network caused widespread disruption last week. Many systems rely on precise timing and use the GPS network as a source for a reliable and accurate timing signal.

But on 26 November an error occurred during the decommissioning of a GPS satellite which resulted in a seemingly insignificant timing error of a mere 13 microseconds and that was enough to cause problems.

The US Air Force have issued a statement: "On 26 January at 12:49 a.m. MST, the 2nd Space Operations Squadron at the 50th Space Wing, Schriever Air Force Base, Colo., verified users were experiencing GPS timing issues. Further investigation revealed an issue in the Global Positioning System ground software which only affected the time on legacy L-band signals. This change occurred when the oldest vehicle, SVN 23, was removed from the constellation".

They have not said how the error crept in but it resulted in problems with DAB radio here in the UK as well as digital phone networks in other countries.
