No - the accuracy of the satellite position is very important. Yes - the algorithm basically does do ranging using the contents of the GPS message (precise clock and position - the receiver then uses its clock to integrate multiple signals to determine its position on earth) as well as using phase of the signal to further increase accuracy. Using dual frequency allows for cancellation of a lot of atmospheric noise in the signal as well (for higher end dual frequency receivers).

The current GPS satellites are usually positioned to < 1m although they are not guaranteed to be that accurate (I think it is somewhere around 7 meters). If you post process the data using updated ephemeris (orbital positions) you can reduce that even further.

As for Galileo - well I have been waiting for it for 30 years now... D'Oh! | :doh:
I, for one, like Roman Numerals.
