GNSS works with multiple satellite systems (GPS America, Galileo Europe, Glonass Russia, Beidou China). GNSS can receive up to 3 times more satellites in total than GPS. The accuracy of the GNSS system is therefore many times higher than GPS systems. The accuracy of the GNSS system is therefore many times higher than GPS systems.
