Geocache Description:


Last update 15.11.2004 4:40 MEZ
Open the cache now for all GPSr -GARMIN/MAGELLAN/COBRA.....which support Waas!

EGNOS / WAAS ist nun auch bei den Garmin GPS Geräten aktiviert !

Es gibt zwar noch keine Garantie für die Genauigkeit der Daten ( EGNOS ist noch in der Testphase..kann auch zeitweise abgeschaltet werden...)aber es ist nun eine Genauigkeit/EPE von 2 Metern möglich. Wer nun ein WAAS fähiges GPS Gerät (egal welcher Marke) sein eigen nennt und dies mittels Foto beweisen kann ( Foto des Displays der Satelitten-Seite mit den kleinen "D's" in den Satellitenbalken und wenn möglich mit Positionsangabe), kann sich hier einen Log schnell verdienen.................bitte aber nur mit Foto einloggen ! ! !

Hier noch ein Link zum EGNOS Status: http://esamultimedia.esa.int/docs/egnos/estb/broadcast.htm Die oben angegebenen Koordinaten tun nichts zur Sache, nicht beachten !

Cache log’s where i can’t see the „D’s“ or an other proof who shows Waas or Egnos signal on the Photos will be delete! Remember that !!

To the Cachepolice:

Please give me a short message - @mail- i’ve you found log’s they didn’t proof Waas and Egnos Signals shown on the Log Photo’s ! They will be delete soon as possible! Thanks for your help, Jever

EGNOS/WAAS has now been activated for Garmin devices!

Due to the ongoing testing of the EGNOS system the accuracy of the data can not be guaranteed. Nevertheless, GPSr settling down for 2 meters accuracy have been reported.

This cache is for users of all GPSr which support WAAS. The log entry needs to include a picture showing the satellite page of your GPSr with the small D's in the strength bars and when it is possible with the position data - as seen in the picture below.

Specially thanks for the translation to Markus!

Viel Erfolg mit EGNOS und WAAS, Jever
