A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS.

That means the carrier also needs to provide servers and tower software to help take what little the handheld knows and provide a complete position solution.

isn't this what Verizon has? because i thought most of their Navigators do not actually use GPS but instead the triangulation method~correct me if im wrong.

The latest VZ Navigator requires either an internal or external phone GPS.

Verizon, Sprint, Nextel use onboard GPS for meeting 911 requirements.

AT&T, T-Mobile use tower triangulation, which is less accurate.
