getPosASL _obj select 2; might sometimes return the vertical position above sea level, but over land for stacked objects, it returns the vertical position above the object beneath it or at least affected by this offset. The same problem exists for getPos. There was a discussion thread in the BIS forums which suggested the use of the command modelToWorld instead to get around this issue where an absolute vertical position is required. ArmA Ver 1.02.

According to Code Optimisation, this function is the fastest (2x) and should be used instead of getPos, getPosATL and position. Conversion keep this speed ratio and is structured like: ASLtoATL getPosASL Object;

Further to Florians post, getPosASL is indeed faster than position and getpos, but is no faster that getposATL
