It is the most comprehensive database of its kind and now covers 90 countries. Don't take our word for it, take a wander through our forums and see what our customers think of our database and our service.

Their feedback is better than any sales pitch we can come up with.

And finally, don't be afraid to ask, if you need satnav help, want to install speed camera alerts, or just need advice on a purchase, we're here to help.

Don't be shy, just head to the forums.

News: 2019 QEPrize Awarded To Creators Of GPS

pocketgpsworld.com
The Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering has been awarded to Dr Bradford Parkinson, Professor James Spilker, Hugo Fruehauf, and Richard Schwartz for their work on the Global Positioning System (GPS).

This year the £1 million Queen Elizabeth Prize for innovation in engineering has been awarded to the creators of GPS. Awarded on behalf of the Queen, the four people to receive the award are Hugo Fruehauf, Dr Bradford Parkinson, Richard Schwartz, and Anna Marie Spilker, who accepted the award on behalf of her late husband, Professor James Spilker Jr.

The four individuals played key roles in developing the Global Positioning System (GPS). Dr Parkinson led development, design, and testing, Mr Fruehauf developed the highly miniaturised atomic clock, a key foundation component for GPS, Mr Schwartz engineered a radiation hardened satellite and Professor Spilker Jr and his team at Stanford Telecommunications built the receiver that processed the first GPS satellite signals.

Billions of people now rely on the GPS network.

News: UKspace 2020 Manifesto Reiterates Need For GNSS System

pocketgpsworld.com
UKspace has released its 2020 manifesto in which it reiterates the importance of the UK having its own GPS System post-Brexit.

The manifesto says the UK must secure participation in a global satellite navigation system either via the ESA's Galileo programme or by developing its own sovereign system.

Britain quit the Galileo program in November 2018 after investing more than £1.4bn but the estimated £5bn costs of developing its own makes a sovereign system unlikely. UKspace is calling for increased ESA funding saying "European Space Agency (ESA) funding is fundamental to ensuring that industry can develop and manufacture the space technologies, capability and supply chains needed to secure the United Kingdom’s role in the global space market".

News: First Demonstration Of A Galileo Enabled Autonomous Vehicle

pocketgpsworld.com
A French University has demonstrated the first autonomous vehicle powered by Galileo.

In a world first, the Renault ZOE electric car can autonomously drive along public roads using Galileo signals and the ESCAPE GNSS engine (EGE), funded by the European GNSS Agency.

The EGE prototype design includes several major components, including a novel multi-frequency, multi-constellation automotive-grade GNSS receiver. The main distinguishing feature of the ESCAPE receiver is its ability to precisely and simultaneously process signals from two different GNSS bands and from different satellite constellations.

The receiver is also a first-of-a-kind device in its segment to support the new Navigation Message Authentication (NMA) service of Galileo - the open E1 signal.

News: TomTom & The University Of Amsterdam Open Research Lab

pocketgpsworld.com
Dutch GPS company TomTom has partnered with The University of Amsterdam to launch a new lab that aims to use AI to develop high-definition maps for autonomous vehicles.

The Innovation Centre for Artificial Intelligence (ICAI) in the Amsterdam Science Park will see PhD students working to develop AI systems that can recognise roadside infrastructure such as traffic lights.

"TomTom is pushing the boundaries of AI for making HD maps for self-driving cars," said Harold Goddijn, TomTom CEO. "This will take us a step closer to an autonomous future with safer roads that are free of congestion and emissions."

TomTom's new autonomous test vehicle 'Trillian' is also now on the road in Berlin. Equipped with LiDAR, radar, stereo cameras and TomTom's High Definition mapping.

News: GPS Spoofing, A New Type Of Attack Has Been Detected

pocketgpsworld.com
A worrying new GPS Spoofing method has been detected being used in Shanghai, China and it has everyone worried. Nobody knows who is behind the attacks but the suspicion is the technology is so sophisticated that it must be state sponsored.

The first signs of an issue began when ship crews, manoeuvring their vessels in the congested waterways of Shanghai port observed other ship traffic, supposedly ahead of them in the shipping lane, disappearing from their navigation displays only to reappear a minute or so later apparently tied up at the dockside.

Now new research has revealed that thousands of vessels have been victim of this new type of spoofing and the most worrying aspect is experts have no idea how it is being done. It's one thing to jam a GPS signal, but spoofing a signal in this way is much more difficult.
