I’m’ from Australia & Currently waiting on a StarGazer I ordered a few weeks ago.
</p>
<p>
A few days ago I watched a promo video Andy Mapple did on Zero Off. My ears pricked up when he used the phrase “Differential GPS”.
</p>
<p>
I know a bit about GPS technologies & presume he would have been referring to WAAS (Wide Area Augmentation System).
</p>

</p>
<p>
Being an Aussie & owning several hand held GPS’s I soon came to learn that down here WAAS needs to be turned off for best accuracy
</p>
<p>
As the corrections it supplies are only relevant to the US continent.
</p>
<p>
Turn it on here & our accuracy goes out the window.
</p>
<p>
So this got me wondering straight away, Does ZO use WAAS & if so can it be disables for the Southern Hemi-sphere.
</p>
<p>
As StarGazer is obviously GPS based, (really stating the obvious there) I wondered also whether the GPS technology in it also uses WAAS & whether or not it can also be disabled.
</p>
<p>
Anyone got any ideas?
