    Re: GPS Accuracy Now.

            *       Selective Availability (SA)
                    *       SA is the intentional degradation of the SPS signals by a time varying
    bias. SA is controlled by the DOD to limit accuracy for non-U. S. military
    and government users. The potential accuracy of the C/A code of around 30
    meters is reduced to 100 meters (two standard deviations).

    The above is a very good reference on GPS.  It seems to indicate an expected
    accuracy of 30 metres with SA turned off on non-DGPS receivers.  The site
    has much more information on this and other errors.

    Subject: GPS Accuracy Now.
    With the reality that the government has now taken off "selective
    availability", does this mean that the DGPS is now an obsolete piece of
    equipment? What kind of accuracy can one expect to be the norm now? 1 - 5
    meters? Does anyone know?
