I can recommend the "Global Positioning System: Theory and Application - Volume I" and also (naturally) Volume II, edited by Parkinson & Spilker.
The pair should be a natural extention to the "Understanding GPS Principles
and Applications" edited by Kaplan.
The Kaplan book is now updated, so I should probably get that one. Anyone who
have compared them and have any comments on the new version?
There are many good articles, but a good choice of books provide a wider and
fuller background, from which most articles actually assume you read them.
