Question Stand -Alone GPS approaches using Lnav, Vnav

I've tried on the Technical forums, but no luck!
Does anyone have information (or a course) on 'Stand-Alone GPS approaches using Lnav, Vnav', including accuracy and reasons for a Go-around?
Does your airline do these and what checks/procedure do you use?

Probably not a lot of help but have you tried the military forum ? In my little bit of the world they are the major users of GPS approaches .There may be someone there with more than a passing notion ! Good luck !

Which country are you looking at flying the approach in???
In OZ we have been operating GPS approaches which can be coupled for some time. These include helo approaches to a point in space. They are a whole lot better than a NDB approach on a thundery night. Various system requirements etc can be found on the OZ CASA web site.

Thanks, Syd, I'll trawl through the infomation there.

Does anyone have airline SOPs for GPS approaches?
