News: EGNOS enables first satnav landing of passenger aircraft

pocketgpsworld.com
A passenger aircraft has made the first precision approach procedure guided only by satellite navigation thanks to EGNOS (European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service) at Bremen airport in Germany.

EGNOS is a satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) that enhances the positional accuracy of GPS and provides an alternative to the conventional ILS (Instrument Landing System) used by aircraft currently.

EGNOS permits landings to be attempted in CAT I visibility conditions and guides the pilot down to 60 metres above the ground before the pilot must make a visual sighting of the runway and confirm it is safe to land.

EGNOS offers a number of advantages, it offers an increase in precision over ILS and does not require the ground infrastructure that ILS needs, reducing costs for airport operators. Aircraft wishing to use this system require EGNOS receivers in the cockpit.

News: Updates to TomTom's original iPhone App will end in Sep

pocketgpsworld.com
For those of you still using the original TomTom iPhone app, the company has just released an update with a note forewarning that updates will cease in September and citing changes in TomTom and Apple technologies for the decision.

TomTom launched their all new smartphone app, TomTom GO, in 2015. It reflected the user interface changes that had been made on it's PNDs and, unlike its predecessor, the new app was free and came bundled with a limited number of navigation miles. To unlock unlimited navigation you have to buy one or three years access.

Unfortunately the app met with decidedly luke warm reviews. The interface was dumbed down and, despite some updates, lacks core functionality that was available in the original app.

So many of us have clung on to the original despite TomTom offering a free upgrade for those who had bought the older version. But without map updates it seems we will have little option but to move to TomTom GO or another navigation app after September.
