Brad Parkinson believes that the development is out of date, and the characteristics of these satellites do not meet the latest requirements. That is, it may happen that Russian consumers who have made bid solely on GPS, in the near future may be faced with the need to transition to GLONASS, and this additional cost! However, many practitioners believe that all these disputes are still purely theoretical, in fact, GLONASS in "pure form" is not applicable. Russian companies are mostly equipped with hardware-software complexes GLONASS / GPS, that is used just two satellite system – and the GLONASS and GPS, thus ensuring maximum quality monitoring. Practice in selecting hardware and software complex is recommended to pay attention primarily on the compatibility hardware-software complex, more precisely, the software part of the software, which is already in force in the enterprise. For example, if your organization is using the 1C (1C: Enterprise Management or 1C), it is best to choose software and hardware, the software is built on 1C, ie 1C satellite monitoring center of the GLONASS / GPS. This way you will minimize the possibility of incompatibility software products, disruptions of the complex and, consequently, the additional costs of maintaining its viability. How long will the introduction of satellite monitoring, how much will it cost? If you take as an example of hardware-software complex, which includes software 1C satellite monitoring center of the GLONASS / GPS, the "disposition" of time will be approximately as follows: installation of equipment on one vehicle means no fuel it takes 1 hour, with fuel – 4 hours, setting up a Pocket PC (smartphone) is carried out in 15 minutes, adding objects to the data collection server – 1 hour, the installation and configuration 1C: Center for satellite monitoring of GLONASS / GPS will take only 2 hours. That is all happening pretty quickly.
The scale of prices for hardware and software systems is quite broad. Do not rely on the value specified in Internet price lists, it is better to call directly to the company whose offer you are interested, discuss with the manager – it is possible to agree on acceptable terms of sale, the more so because the final price is usually depends on the number of purchased equipment … … until today and the print media and on the internet, has been widely discussed possibility of increasing the price of hardware and software systems, especially as interest This theme is heated messages published in reputable journals rather. For example, Kommersant, citing RIA "Novosti" reports that "Deputy Prime Minister Sergei Ivanov believes it necessary to introduce to January 1, 2011 import duty on navigational system GPS. Its size can be 25%. "These are the realities of today, the findings do for you.
