Homework Help: Smartphone GPS Interference

  1. Apr 1, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The number of GPS units/receivers on smartphones has increased tremendously. Is this going to cause interference? Why?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I'm not sure if the units only interfere when they are close to each other or what prevents them from interfering.

    You'll need to do some basic research on how GPS works. What does a receiver need to do to obtain its location?
