It uses the normal American GPS satellites, but it can parallel receive the Russian GLONASS or chinese BeiDou satellite system. This increase the satellite available for navigation, especially in areas with inadequate GPS coverage or signal shading (mountains, tall buildings) (see pictures) For the suppression of external interference sources (such as video transmitters) a HF preamplifier and a SAW filter was integrated.
On the bottom side there is a mounting space for the optional external compass The GPS shield increases the signal quality of the receiving satellites.
