And, last time I checked, it was looking kinda difficult to build stationary cell towers on the ocean, nevermind a pesky lack of demand...

Plus, air traffic is now highly dependant on GPS and most cell antennas aren't aimed up at the sky.

So, for imprecise civilian needs (tell me how to go from here to there), a cell tower based nav system might be fine. But GPS is capable of providing a whole lot more than that.

The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.
