Abstract : The patent relates to a magnetometer mounted on a vehicle used for sensing the earth's ambient magnetic field. Various magnetic fields in specified planes are generated and applied to the magnetometer in addition to the earth's field for obtaining fixed magnetic deviations in the specified planes. Various arithmetic operations to the measured values of the ambient and generated magnetic fields provide addition parameters that may be used for determining the geographic location of the vehicle.
