E-GPS combines CPS's Matrix technology, which measures network-based signalling, with satellite-based location technology to provide all-environment coverage.
It said that power requirements are reduced significantly for the initial GPS signals acquisition and subsequent tracking, and claimed that the technology provides a smaller, lower cost way for handset developers to implement E-GPS solutions.

) technology for GPS signal extrapolation in tunnels and urban canyons
An Enhanced GPS (E-GPS
) multimedia handset solution for GSM has been designed by Shanghai Simcom (Simcom), a subsidiary of mobile handset solutions provider SIM Technology Group.
Location technology companies, Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB), and Cambridge Positioning Systems (CPS), have announced that they will jointly develop new products to deliver Enhanced Global Positioning Systems (E-GPS
) for the wireless and mobile device markets.
