GPS satellites transmits
their signals in space with a specific precision, but what you get on earth depends
upon various factors, including atmospheric conditions, signal blockage, satellite
geometry, and receiver design quality.
For an instance: Mostly, GPS-enabled
smartphones are usually accurate to within a 4.9 m (16 ft.) radius under clear sky.
But their accuracy degrades near bridges, high-rise buildings, and trees.
