Editorial Reviews

Review

The proliferation of Assisted GPS into consumer electronics merited an in-depth explanation of the technology and science behind it. Dr. van Diggelen, an A-GPS authority in the navigation industry, shares his wealth of academic, engineering and field experience with all of us in a truly accessible manner. Warmly recommended to all involved in building location aware products and services. --Peter-Frans Pauwels, Co-founder and CTO, TomTom

Dr. Van Diggelen has a masterpiece on his hands. He covers the topic of Assisted GPS, which will be a critical technology for a good long time. In every paragraph, his love of teaching shines through. He writes with a snap and cadence seldom found in technical writing. He also includes a "book within a book;" some 80 pages or so can be found at the beginning of the book and each chapter. These essays provide overviews to the more analytical material that follows. Enjoy. --Professor Per Enge, PhD, NAE Stanford University

Assisted GPS is a deep topic, and Frank van Diggelen has skillfully explained everything from the details of coarse-time navigation to the limits of high-sensitivity signal processing. An impressively thorough book that leaves no stone unturned. --Steve Wozniak, Fellow, Apple Inc.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have read this book couple of times already. I highly recommend it since it can be used by the new comers to GPS as well as the experts. It has lots of detailed information that you can not find anywhere else. What i like about it is that the author does not leave any subject unexplained. He explains every term or subject about GPS that allows the reader to understand the subject well and encourage the reader to go on and continue reading and learning about GPS. It also has some real examples on how to design a GPS chip. The author does not only explain the theory behind GPS , but he also shows you details on how latest GPS chips are designed.
I want to thank the Author for providing this gem for us, it made my life and my work much easier.

Format: Hardcover
This is a fantastic book on GPS (& A-GPS). My understanding of GPS system design & performance evaluation grew exponentially after reading this book. I've read a lot of GPS books. They all tend to be extremely theoretical and written with graduate students / researchers in mind. This book bridges the gap between theory & practice and offers incredible insight into the way real-world GPS receivers are designed, as well as the intuitive thinking behind each concept.

I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a in-depth understanding of GPS principles & practice. I would rate this book in the top 1% of my list of GPS books.

Format: Hardcover
Very detailed and clear explanations of AGPS in all regards. I found this book very useful, and I have already cited it in some of my research projects. I especially appreciate the coarse-time and fine-time acquisition sensitivity curves in Chapter 6. Highly recommended!
