As we benefit from these latest technological developments we naturally-or perhaps greedily-ask, what's next? To a large degree, the next generation of marine electronics will consist of further improvements in what has already been made available, including a welcome decrease in the cost of the equipment. We will also see the introduction of integrated GPS e-Loran receiver modules that, when connected to chart plotters, will present a precise position fix, plus accurate true-north heading data, regardless of boat speed. Operating in a "chainless" mode, the receiver will utilize all of the e-Loran signals available, eliminating the need to select a group repetition interval. The value of GPS will be further improved with the addition of new satellites, availability of the Galileo and revitalized GLONASS system, and the availability of an additional L1 frequency for civilian users.
