Why devices with position tracking require an internet connection

Why devices with position tracking require an internet connection
In a few months the European satellite system Galileo will be completed. Most devices with location tracking functions already support it. Even so, their manufacturers should endeavour to implement over-the-air access, as this is the only way that satellite selection can be adjusted on demand as needed – something which can be a critical factor, writes Bernd Hantsche, Director Product Marketing Embedded & Wireless at Rutronik.
