GLONASS infographic

glonass-infographicSince we now have a consumer handheld that can utilize the Russian GLONASS constellation, I couldn’t resist posting this. My apologies for the poor quality of the image. ITAR-TASS apparently sells these, so there are probably better images available, but the “buy” link takes you to a Russian language only page.

  1. The iPhone 4S also receives GLONASS signals so quite a few people have consumer devices in their hands that can use the Russian GLONASS constellation.

    Thanks for the infographic. Nice to know my iPhone can pick up even more satellites for location.
