My guess is they're using DGPS. There are a number of known base
stations in South Korea.

I looked into this briefly, and it seems like you can use DGPS with
u-blox - all you have to do is send it RTCM messages. There's a list
of transmitters here: (I'm guessing
these send RTCM, but it doesn't say so explicitly).

It also looks like you can get them over the 'net: And possibly other places.

This seems like something that wouldn't be too hard to add to the
u-blox support.
