When I 1st installed the software in my phone, GMXT will use my gprs connection to connect me to the satellite to locate my current location. This way, I got logged on to the satellite much faster.
This is what we call A-GPS.
You can re-activate it by going to: Tools/ Settings/ General/ Positioning/ Positioning Methods and tick Assisted GPS
No doubt it locks signal much more faster but at the same time, you will be charged RM0.10 each time it uses gprs. If I'm not mistaken, the charges is RM0.10/10kb (one block). Even though each connection may only consume few bytes, you'll still be charged RM0.10.
If you use it in city with plenty of junctions etc, it will cost you about RM1.00 for about 3km.
I can't tell the exact amount as I think it will connect to gprs whenever it makes announcement...
actually no,it will only activate the gprs whenever the gps signal lost,and most of the time even if it lost if the device could reacquire signal fast enough,it won't use the gprs. about the cost i not sure with other network,if not mistaken digi charges 10kb per bloke,which is 10sen,but maxis charges at 1kb per bloke,which is 1sen,each gprs activation by gps for coordination will be around 4.7kb,which is about 5sen for maxis,but 10sen for digi. i uses gmxt on my 5800 with the a-gps, and i tested in one journey from KL to fraser hill,to kelantan,it only activate the gprs for 4 times,that makes my whole journey with a-gps cost of just under 20sen
Yes..i agreed...tested on N85..the AGPS only working in short time to helping GPS antenna to get better accuracy (depend on how hard it can get it)..so it mean..AGPS not 'ON' everytimes..just when ur internal antenna get poor accuracy and AGPS do that JOB..so if u don't wanna be charge with big amount of uses AGPS..make sure your phone always in open sky or on dashboard or windscreen (in Car)...Go 'Menu' > 'Tools' > 'Log' > 'Packet Data' > 'Data Counter' > 'Clear Counters' > 12345(Default Password) for Nokia...then open mobile XT..after get better accuracy..u can check how much /kb..
