Just a quick comment about tiny shelf below the steering wheel I find the very handy for keeping my travel document such as Passports, Ferry tickets, hotel booking docs, travel and car insurance doc all in a A5 plastic wallet plus it very discreet yet easy to access of course remove when I get to my destination

Since I released the latest beta version of MyConnectedCar for ConnectNav and SMEG+ systems, I've noticed that the GPS coordinates are super accurate. If I plot them on a map (or run a Desination Map Report in MyConnectedCar) I can identify which parking bay I park in each day at work! I dunno if that's scary, or impressive!

Consumer GPS is considered accurate to within 5m at 95% confidence - so either your parking bays are massive, or you're supplementing GPS / GLONASS with GSM positioning etc

Now - the new Galileo satellites should be good to sub 1m accuracy - if & when they're supported.

Plotting the SatNav locations on Google Satellite maps shows which side of two rows of cars I park. Also I can tell basically where I park. OK, it may have an accuracy of one bay which fits within 5m. I can tell if I park at the end (late arrival) or closer to the entrance, the earlier I arrive.

My school is on the top of a hill with little vegetation around, so should have good sight of satelites.

In a previous life I worked as an MOD contractor. The military grade GPS units were pretty accurate.
