Is it will GPS or A-GPS? It seems this much quick fix is only possible
through A-GPS. With you plan for GPRS, use of A-GPS may be free.

Update on my purchase:

Blue tooth does not work on LG GW620.

Salesman confirmed after consulting "someone" that A-GPS requires Internet.

So with limited time and energy to compare and explore, I purchased
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic.

Has A-GPS and GPS, A-GPS work only through GPRS, and not through WiFi.

Though Symbian is OpenSource, and Gammu support maximum handsets from
Nokia, but for this model it support only "info".


So using this mobile on Linux PC/Laptop is not possible, sad :-( and
my bad luck.
