Coordinate values for 71 permanent stations located in mean latitudes in the Eastern Europe were obtained using observations of only GPS satellites and of GPS and GLONASS satellites. From an analysis of repeatability for components of estimated coordinates of GPS/GLONASS stations it was concluded that, as for now, the inclusion of GLONASS satellites in processing of observation data for permanent stations located in this region did not improve the coordinate estimation accuracy.
