pocketgpsworld.com
Europe's Galileo satellite navigation system is down due to technical issues with their ground infrastructure. The service was 'degraded' in the early hours of July 11th and has been fully unavailable since the early hours of July 12th when a NAGU (Notice Advisory to Galileo Users) was issued that simply states "UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, USERS EXPERIENCE A SERVICE OUTAGE. THE SIGNALS ARE NOT TO BE USED".

The emergency service for locating people in distress (SAR) is still operational although there is no estimate as to when the service will be fully operational again.

News: TomTom Moon? Nope but NASA has plans for lunar nav

pocketgpsworld.com
With NASA's ambitious $30bn plan to land humans on the Moon once again looking like a real possibility they have been investigating how best to navigate once we get there.

Previously astronauts used celestial navigation methods using stars as fixed points to triangulate their location in space. But for astronauts on the Moon a much simpler method is required. And GPS looks like it could work just as well for them as it does for us.

The only issue is that our GPS network is 250,000 miles away, and so a team of scientists and engineers are working on a lunar GPS receiver which will extend GPS service to the Moon.

News: Russia believed responsible for Israel GPS interference

pocketgpsworld.com
Russia has been blamed for GPS interference affecting airspace around Ben Gurion Airport.

Israeli officials believe Russia was behind the GPS disruption although Russia deny it.

The interference is believed to originate in Syria and was in the form of spoofing rather than simpler jamming of the GPS signal. GPS receivers were being fed with incorrect location data, something that required advanced technology. Similar spoofing that affected shipping has been seen in the Black Sea in 2017.

Aircraft approaching Ben Gurion Airport have reverted to using the Instrument Landing System (ILS) instead of GPS data, a statement from the Airports Authority reiterated that at no stage was there a safety issue during the outage.

News: Epic fail - Google Maps detour ends in a muddy field

pocketgpsworld.com
This is a corker. With traffic on a road leading to Denver International Airport backing up following a traffic accident, Google Maps suggested a detour.

And so about 100 drivers jumped at the chance to escape the snarl up. But that decision turned out to be a big mistake. The short cut ended in a field and with recent rain and so many vehicles that field quickly became a quagmire, and dozens of drivers were well and truly stuck.

Google have blamed the issue on a mapping error, with a route that should have been marked as not for public use, being incorrectly used in calculations.

This sort of mapping error used to be quite common in the early days of satnav, I recall following a TomTom route in Devon that took me down ever narrower lanes, then rutted lanes, then barely a track only to end up at a locked gate in the middle of nowhere. But so good are our maps now that these errors are rare now.

Still, funny, so long as you are not one of those caught in the melee. And easy to see how they can happen, who amongst us hasn't followed a satnav detour around traffic only to be in a convoy of cars doing the same!
