At trimble.com you can download their GPS planning program and a current GPS almanac. With this program you will know all about the satellites from any location... how high, what angles, etc. you can even for a given location as in a fjord or next to a steep mountain, simulate that blockage to see when your best fixes will be available... esp nice if you have a gps sitting in a window at home and need to monitor when your best view of the satellites will be etc. A very nice utility to have onboard for the rare event that you are blocked in... and maybe need to make a tricky passage and want to be sure you will have coverage, etc.
