(Service Bulletin No. SB-011/17.10.07)

New Features:

  • Nokia A-GPS service is global assistance data service for Nokia terminals.It provides assistance data in all countries, so it works world-wide Service utilizes GPRS data connection and OMA Secure User Plan Location (SUPL) protocol for transferring assistance data from assistance data service to terminal. WLAN is currently not supported.
  • End-user does not need to configure this service. It is immediately available out-of-the-box
  • Service works always when GPRS data connection is available. Also during roaming
  • Nokia A-GPS service does not depend on operator services. It just requires GPRS data connection. If assistance data cannot be fetched, then terminal works as plain standalone GPS.
  • Nokia A-GPS service improves time to first fix in cold-start situations where GPS receiver has been in power off state when location application is engaged.
  • Time to first fix is reduced from 40 seconds-2 minutes to 15-30 seconds range greatly improving end-user experience.
  • Faster position calculation with A-GPS reduces power consumption.
