Samsung Mango uses GLONASS to improve positioning accuracy

Just yesterday we were talking about Qualcomm’s ‘dual satellite’ receivers that worked both with GPS and GLONASS satellites. Today we hear that Samsung now has an High Fidelity Position app which improves satellite positioning on Windows Mango devices. One of the things this app does is to give the user the option to “Use Sensor Aiding” which will use data coming from the gyro sensor and the electronic compass. The second thing is the option to turn on GLONASS capability in which case it will start listening for Russian satellites for a position fix.

I guess you don’t have to wait until next year to get your hands on some GLONASS power.
