Still in the test phase at present, see http://esamultimedia.esa.int/docs/egnos/estb/schedule.htm.

Althoug originally scheduled to go live in April 2004 the ESA are not currently commiting to a date for live operations.

Thats better. Thumbs Up

What I understand the EGNOS/waas is operational. But not 100%. Then everyone who are having a reciver that can pic up egnos/ was signals should be able to use it?


Or?

Maybe I'm drunk or something. :x

It's in test mode which means it's operational some of the time but cannot be relied on.

Unless it's changed in the last fortnight, the only satellite radiating EGNOS signals is Inmarsat IOR (PRN 131) which is so low to the horizon, particularly in western Europe, that it's impossible to pick up signals from.

The only way to receive EGNOS until there's coverage from the satellites is via SiSNet which is a very specialist thing - you get the wide area differential corrections over GPRS. I don't think there's any Pocket PC client software for this - and for TomTom Navigator and the like, SBAS isn't needed.

EGNOS will likely be launched before the end of the year - I suspect you won't have that long to wait.

I have an Acore AG-600 BT GPS (http://www.acoretech.com/AG600.htm). Should EGNOS be enabled on it already, or do I have to do that myself? Is there any reason not to have it enabled?
