Where I am near Gatwick I get all inbound flights that give accurate altitude and speed down to about 500 feet.Then they start to lose accuracy and
although they are shown directly over the runway,sometimes they are still showing maybe 200 feet altitude when I hear the tower controller passing
them over to the ground controller.
Edit......They must be upgrading it as I can now see the leader vehicles on the ground at Gatwick and even our local air ambulance helicopter I've
never seen before.
