Cell Phones: How can you tell if GPS is network dependent or totally stand alone?
This is a good question we have sent in via our contact page, one of our readers called Brian has a good question that you may be able to answer.
Brian Asks: Could you clarify something for me regarding GPS on these new cell phones? When reading your reviews, how can I tell if the GPS is network dependent or totally stand alone? I want a GPS that will work when I am out of range of the network or traveling in another country without incurring roaming charges. Maybe you could coin some new jargon – ND-GPS for network dependent and SA-GPS for stand alone. It makes a huge difference in Canada as our data transfer rates are very expensive.
If anyone can answer this for Brian that would be fantastic, if no one can answer this then we will find out. We know about phones but when it comes to the technical terms within mobile cell phones it can sometimes be all jargon to us, we bring you all the latest news about the phones and obviously what specifications they have.
