Idiens is on a distinguished road
Further good news for us is:-

There's a US/EU agreement in place that Galileo and GPS III (3rd Generation) will share a common scheme for their L1 and L5 signals. So in about 2015, we will have an extraordinary improvement in performance.

The bad news is:-

We will have to buy new receivers to take advantage (but the old ones will still work).

To complicate things:-

Russian GLONASS and Chinese COMPASS are likely to be working too. We'll be spoilt for choice.
