06380890 is referenced by 20 patents.

An embodiment of the invention includes a plurality of navigational position sources (

208

) disposed to provide position data, a position service module (

202

) to aggregate position data and to form a composite of position data (

240

) and a position session module (

204

) to transmit composite of position data (

240

) to applications (

210, 212, 214, 216

). An embodiment of a method includes providing a plurality of navigational position sources (

208

) disposed to provide position data, providing a position service module (

202

) disposed to receive position data, and aggregating position data to form composite of position data (

240

). Composite of position data (

240

) is then transmitted to applications (

210, 212, 214, 216

) via a position session module (

204

).
