GLONASS and GPS mean dual-core location services

If QUALCOMM has anything to say about it, our GPS and location services will be much more accurate shortly. The company has announced that its Snapdragon S2 and S3 platforms now support Russian GLONASS and GPS satellites. That means there are twice as many satellites to provide your location.

The time to get a location fix will be shorter and the fix will be more accurate too. The satellites will find you within 2 meters. The QUALCOMM chips will know when they need to turn on GLONASS to save battery life.

Qualcomm says that the feature for GLONASS might not be activated by all vendors so people will need to check with the maker on individual devices. The first phone to have the dual capability is the Galaxy S II
