Assisted GPS (A-GPS)
Your device also supports assisted GPS (A-GPS).
A-GPS requires network support.
Assisted GPS (A-GPS) is used to retrieve assistance data
over a packet data connection, which assists in
calculating the coordinates of your current location
when your device is receiving signals from satellites.
When you activate A-GPS, your device receives useful
satellite information from an assistance data server
over the cellular network. With the help of assisted
data, your device can obtain the GPS position faster.
Your device is preconfigured to use the Nokia A-GPS
service, if no service provider-specific A-GPS settings
are available. The assistance data is retrieved from the
Nokia A-GPS service server only when needed.
To disable the A-GPS service, select
You must have an internet access point defined in the
device to retrieve assistance data from the Nokia A-GPS
service over a packet data connection. The access point
for A-GPS can be defined in positioning settings. A
wireless LAN (WLAN) access point cannot be used for
this service. Only a packet data internet access point
can be used. Your device asks you to select the internet
access point when GPS is used for the first time.
