Specified accuracy is 2.5 meters CEP and 5 meters SEP. CEP is Circular Error Probability. It is the radius of a horizontal circle, centered at the true antenna position, containing 50% of the fixes. SEP is Spherical Error Probability. It is the radius of a sphere, centered at the true antenna position, containing 50% of the fixes.
NOTE: We are turning off our GPS engine after 5 positions in a row (1 per second) are acquired with a horizontal accuracy of 5 meters or less.
