We recommend: a 4x faster Goelocalization with Galileo

Check the settings of your smartphone to see if your device is Galileo compatible. It’s worth it!

Galileo compatible devices are more accurate than those that use GPS, Glonass or both. On average, it takes 16 seconds to locate a smartphone with Galileo compared to 46 seconds with the GPS system.
Galileo is the European satellite navigation system that currently owns 26 Galileo satellites in space, is expected to reach 30 by 2020, and has been in operation since December 2016. With the help of the Galileo satellites, as a mobile phone user in Europe you can access better navigation data. According to ESA, this will help provide a more accurate signal to make Galileo the best satellite navigation system in the world by 2020.

Indeed, the European system is two to three times more accurate than the GPS system (the accuracy is 20 centimer versus 10-15 metres). Another consequence is that smartphones integrating Galileo should be less affected by obstacles. The system is more effective for locations in dense areas (cities) or forests. This is a further advantage for the European system.
