Nieuws over het nieuwe Europese Galileo satelliet- navigatiesysteem
What is the Galileo Satellite Network?
On December 15th 2016 the European Commission announced that the European satellite system Galileo will start offering its initial services. Over the next few years Galileo will increase the number of satellites from the existing 18 to the full operational capacity of 30 satellites.
Will Garmin devices work with this new network?
We at Garmin have been tracking the development of Galileo for over a decade and will continue to track its development. Many of our products are Galileo capable, and now that the Galileo system has reached its initial operational capability, we will carefully test and validate our Galileo capable products and provide selected updates at a future date. We are committed to delighting our customers with best in class positioning capabilities, and look forward to integrating the Galileo service into many of our products.
What models have received a software update so far to support Galileo?
The following devices received a software update to include the ability to connect to the Galileo Satellite Network in addition to the United States GPS constellation. You will find the option to connect to both GPS+Galileo under the GPS settings of the device. For more details on how to access this setting, refer to your Owner's Manual.
