Main Question or Discussion Point

Is it plausable to take into account the speed of the earths spin when calculating tmie dilation for satellites and GPS receivers?

You could take into account the satellites spining against the earths orbit, with the earths orbit and at an angle?

I put it into my project but is it a good idea or am I missing something to do this? I found that for a recevier on the equator and a satellite goin with the orbit the difference to be
9.3 *10^-6 (without relative velocity the answer is 7.3 *10^-6)
