A new enhanced GPS system….GREAT. Apple`s updated technical specification page showed an upgraded GPS system on the iPhone 4S with support for GLONASS.

In case you are not familiar with the term, GLONASS is short for Global Navigation Satellite System which is, according to Wikipedia, a radio-based satellite navigation system operated by the Russian Space Forces. It is an alternative United States’ Global Positioning System (GPS), the Chinese Compass navigation system and the planned Galileo positioning system of the European Union. You `re up for a highly accurate GPS experience folks

GLONASS is connected to 24 satellites worldwide which work alongside the standard 31GPS satellites giving you a greatly enhanced fix speed and accuracy.

That`s a pretty awesome advancement,don`t you think?!
