New u-blox M8 Firmware Now Supports Galileo, Increases GNSS Signal Acquisition Sensitivity and Security

Thalwil, Switzerland–based u-blox has announced the upcoming release of a new firmware, FW 3.01, for its u-blox M8 multi-GNSS platform.

u-blox M8 FW 3.01 will now also support Galileo in addition to GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou. It can track up to three constellations concurrently and makes use of all satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) signals and Japan’s Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS) at the same time, according to the company.

Making Good Better

SBAS and RNSS: The Unsung Heroes of GNSS 

Okay, if I had wanted to pander to GNSS fans, I might have called this, “Making Great Greater.”

But there are only so many superlatives that can be lathered on this remarkable technology before simple praise turns into hagiography. 

So, it’s time once more to give a little love to those unsung heroes of GNSS: the augmentations and regional navigation satellite systems.
