In this tutorial we will explain how to use PointPerfect on your Android devices.

PointPerfect is u-blox PPP-RTK GNSS augmentation data service which delivers centimeter-level accuracy in seconds on a continental scale.

In this tutorial we will use GNSS Master app because it has built in PointPerfect capability to send corrections directly to your GNSS receiver.

Note: Using PointPerfect requires a GNSS receiver capable of decoding and applying SPARTN corrections. Currently, only u-blox F9P/F9R/F9K receivers are supported.
