    CTIA: AT&T Intros New GPS Technology to Improve Location-based Services

    Advertisement



    AT&T has deployed assisted GPS technology (A-GPS) within its wireless network to enhance existing and planned location-based services (LBS) used with A-GPS capable devices.
    A-GPS technology gives capable devices a significant jump-start on identifying the user's initial location.

    GPS devices search satellites each time they are turned on to determine starting latitude and longitude, a process that previously took as long as several minutes.

    With A-GPS, AT&T's network speeds up that query by identifying nearby cell sites, helping the device more quickly hone in on the appropriate satellites. Assisted in this way, A-GPS capable devices can identify a user's initial location in fewer than 20 seconds, delivering greater convenience to customers using LBS.

    How will this affect existing BlackBerry devices that already use the GPS system? will it change anything? Will AT&T start charging for GPS services?
