Direction. Purpose. Meaning. Find out where IZat.

Ordinary GPS only shows where you are. Qualcomm® IZat™ location services also show who and what are around you, whether you’re indoors or out.

Did you know?

IZat location technologies are currently available in over 3 billion devices.

Meet the world around you.

The shoe store you’re passing has a discount just for you. Your friends are at that coffee shop across the street. Need a newsstand? There’s one next to your gate in Terminal 3. IZat location technologies give more than directions—they give context.

Behold, the possibilities.

Find your location.

More sources mean more precise information (and we use a lot of sources).

Find your destination.

Get from A to B easily, whether you’re going across the hall or across town.

Find real savings.

Why waste time bargain hunting? With location-based promotions, the deals find you.

Find friends.

Never miss a chance to hang out. If Facebook friends are nearby, you’ll know.

Designed to be quicker, more accurate, and more dependable.

Augmented Positioning

Ubiquitous Wi-Fi and cellular networks ensure accurate positioning. With assistance from both networks and the sensors already in your device, IZat location technologies can calculate info faster and more precisely than ever—indoors and out.

GNSS Chipsets

Using GPS, GLONASS, and BeiDou satellites, IZat location technologies pinpoint your position anywhere in the world, even in challenging urban environments. This provides always-on location awareness without draining your battery.

Cloud-Based Assistance

IZat location technologies use a network of cloud-based assistance servers that provide industry-leading location performance for any mobile device, on any network, in any environment.

Built Right In

Qualcomm® Snapdragon processors come equipped with IZat location technologies, so your Snapdragon-enabled device can always point you in the right direction.

A smoother ride.

As part of the Snapdragon Automotive Solution, IZat’s advanced GNSS location engine helps you better navigate your drive by simultaneously tracking multiple satellite constellations. And IZat also works with the Qualcomm Adreno™ GPU, so lane detection, as well as 2D and 3D map navigation work quickly and smoothly.

Qualcomm Announces Broad Support for Galileo Across Snapdragon Processor and Modem Portfolios

Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM) today announced that its subsidiary, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., is supporting the European Galileo Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) broadly in its product portfolios. While Qualcomm Technologies began implementing hardware support for Galileo several years ago in select chipsets, this announcement signals the mobile industry’s first pervasive, end-to-end location-services platform for smartphone, computing, infotainment, telematics, and IoT applications.

With these optimized software enhancements, the Qualcomm® IZat location services platform now utilizes up to six satellite constellations concurrently without incremental device hardware or cost. Users now benefit from more than 80 different satellites when calculating global position for navigation or location-based applications. The addition of another GNSS is intended to provide more accurate location performance faster time-to-first-fix, and improved robustness all over the world, particularly in challenging urban environments where the combination of narrow streets and tall buildings can reduce accuracy.

“Accurate, reliable, and rapid position location is an important part of the mobile experience,” said Alex Katouzian, senior vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Qualcomm Technologies is helping to improve consumers’ experiences with location-based services by adding Galileo support to our IZat location platform and deploying it broadly across our modem and application processor portfolios.”

This feature is integrated in the latest Qualcomm® Snapdragon 800, 600, and 400 processors and modems. Galileo will be supported on smartphones and compute devices with the appropriate software release on Snapdragon 820, 652, 650, 625, 617, and 435 processors, automotive infotainment solutions utilizing Snapdragon 820A, and telematics and IoT solutions with Snapdragon X16, X12, X7, and X5 LTE Modems, and Qualcomm® 9x15 and MDM6x00 modems.

These enhanced processors and modems are designed to enable infotainment and telematics solution providers to satisfy an important component of the European eCall mandate ahead of the March 2018 deadline. “We are happy to announce support for the European Galileo satellite navigation system and to see that longstanding efforts and cooperation between the GSA, the European Commission, Qualcomm Technologies and the mobile ecosystem are delivering a key component of the European Digital Single Market,” said Enrico Salvatori, president, Qualcomm Europe. “eCall and Galileo, together with upcoming advances in automotive connectivity pave the way to enhancing road safety and delivering new services to consumers.”


“The Galileo constellation relies on 14 satellites in orbit today. Following our cooperation on Galileo integration, we welcome the announcement that Qualcomm Technologies is contributing to the rapid adoption of Galileo, in view of the Initial Services foreseen by end of 2016. The Galileo signal has demonstrated high performance and we believe will enhance user experience with more accurate and robust positioning,” said Carlo des Dorides, executive director, European GNSS Agency.

The Snapdragon modem and application processor platforms’ widespread ecosystem reach can accelerate mobile industry support for Galileo. To date, over 200 Galileo-enabled Qualcomm Technologies-based designs are already planned, and Qualcomm Technologies expects general availability of the required software in the 3rd quarter of 2016. IZat location solutions have been shipped in more than 5 Billion devices globally.
