Hopefully it will be better than GPS. As for now american sats show me the road where no roads present and vice versa. Taking into account american tendency to neglect the acuteness of its GPS system in our country we should deploy our own satellites for this purpose, cause we need the service without regards to american satellites. Go Glonass!

Europe is developing one as well. the neat thing about them is that they do not "triangulate" as many believe. it is much more sophisticated than that using a system of asymptotes. russia is a little behing US, but Russia and Europe are catching up quickly.

it means "ugly gang hanters" - it was invented by STA (Small Town America) who is posting under all nicks (mine for example but with ISP in United States)- he is a hater of all Russian and a racist so he called all Russians "ugly gang" and pretends he is hunting here - he takes a nick of any poster who is good towards Russia and posts under that nick various bs.-the only indication that it is STA posting is his ISP in United States

I've gone back and forth with him for years. He doesn't like any desent from the "God Bless America" theme. He fooled me this time though.
