GPS some times fail

Recommended Posts

I sit and develop sw for GPS almost everyday,

I have several GPS units located both indoor and outdoor,

I see quite often a huge difference in time to aqure, and the number of sats and NF change from day to day.

I think this can be one of the reasons:

also I see a drop when overcasted and rain is also causing signal drops

I also noticed a difference from time to time in GPS performance. But never looked at more than one unit at a time.

Interesting idea about sun effects.

I noticed last dec29th a total loss of GPS signal (normally bettwen 8-9 fixes when flying). Is there any URL to see if this day the Sun has any anomalous activity to justify that?
