2007-07-16 Reduce interference in GPS-enabled applications
GPS is a navigation system formed by 24 satellites placed in the Earth's six orbits and enables users to determine their position accurately from any location. Consumers expect a handset with GPS capability to be reliable in receiving and amplifying the signal from the satellites because any error on the reception would cause inaccurate information on the location. Unfortunately, the quality of the GPS signals are often times compromised by interfering RF signals.
