Is it possible to do time synchronization without positioning with only 1 GPS satellite?

If not, how many satellites do i need for time synchronization without positioning?

1 Answer 1


It depends on the situation, if the user's location is unknown, at least four satellites need to be used to achieve positioning and timing measurements, and if the exact location of the user is known, the timing synchronization can be achieved using data from a single satellite.
