Navman Jupiter 30 GPS, the first to work indoors
GPS navigation devices help you navigate easily through confusing freeways and country roads but they do not work indoors. Navman has developed the Jupiter 30 GPS module which is sensitive enough to pick signals in indoors also. It the size of a Compact Flash memoy card and weighs four grams. It can track upto 20 GPS satellites simultaneously (out of a 24 total) and horizontal positioning is within 9.5 feet. In addition, velocities of up to 500 meters per second and acceleration of up to 5g can be tracked.
Navman said it will be starting full-scale production of the module this month.
