Every time I hear about high-precision GPS, I try to imagine a use case where that improvement makes a difference.
In reasonable open sky conditions, I think my phone's integrated GPS allows me to identify a car in a row of cars or a tree in a dense park.
Which precision would you achieve with the architecture you are proposing?
Can you give an example where the precision you expect to achieve is useful and the precision I currently get isn't?

Nokia is running a competition to hack / publicise their upcoming N900
smartphone; they say:
"We want you to come up with ideas to hack the N900. A panel of expert
judges will pick the most impressive ideas. We'll support you to
create them and then take the final creations on a world tour."
There's more on the website here:
I'd like to hear from people who would be interested in contributing
towards a D-GPS project based upon the Nokia phone; I'll stand as
project lead and start work on the 1000 word description if there's
enough interest. I propose the development of a D-GPS framework to
enable high accuracy GPS position recording within a network of
locally connected N900s and to provide two implementations of this
technology; a hardware hack to provide the phone with a high
sensitivity antenna and detail pole for survey grade recording and a
second, standard hardware implementation, to enable precise location
and messaging within an urban environment.
The deadline for proposals is October 11th, so if anyone's interested
we better start working soon.
