    Galileo

    Apparently Galileo is now up and running, does anyone know if current GPS recievers can pick up the Galileo constellation?, I somehow doubt it, but can't find a clear statement

    GPS Test on Android allows you to filter out which ever satellites you want for viewing signal strength.

    One Android device listed - http://gis.stackexchange.com/questio...eo-positioning

    So, there is an android phone (probably more than one?), capable of picking it up?, assume, the average Aviation unit like a Garmin 296 just doesn't have the hardware?, I wonder if there is a compatible usb gps dongle that would work with PilotAware?, that would make it a cheap upgrade for me.
