I recall you're from Germany. If so, you may have a look at this discussion 
from a german robot forum: . Here, 
Christian states that a DIY differential GPS did not work for him. That 
surprised me because I had different information from the Net.

However, you will have to try it yourself. Choosing two identical GPS receivers 
would probably be an advantage. Anyway, common GPS receivers use SBAS which 
should give a horizontal precision of 3 meters. That's almost as good as DGPS...

Regards, Achim.
