L2C GPS Signal. As we reported earlier today, the US government today introduced new capaibilities and accuracy of the Global Positioning System (GPS).
The new signal is known as L2C and is designed with higher power so GPS receivers will work better in areas surrounded by large buildings as well as indoors. This will facilitate GPS chipset makers to produce receivers that use less power to acquire the same signal strength, opening the doors to have GPS devices incorporated into smaller and lower power devices.
This is a great step forward for GPS systems and future applications for both commerical and personal GPS applications.
