Beidou Navigation System

#1 Post by scyap » Fri Dec 28, 2012 3:35 pm

Hi All,

Just read that the China's Navigation System 'Beidou' is now available for public usage for navigation.

Just wondering how applicable is this system for use in SgMy and whether any current gps units (Garmin?) is capable to use multiple navigation systems including Beidou.

Will be interesting to know such information. Thank you.

Regards,
SC Yap

current units only receive GPS signals.

garmin Glo can receive GPS + Glonass

maybe in near future some china made pnd will have the new chip set to receive beidou signals

fyi there are several satellite system - GNSS
GPS - navstar (USA)
Glonass (russia)
Galileo (europe)
Beidou - compass (china)
Irnss (india)
qzss (japan)
