Assisted GPS on the Nokia N95

Nokia recently released another Firmware update for the Nokia N95. One of the major new features is Assisted GPS (A-GPS). When it took up to 4 minutes before (even longer sometimes) to get a lock to your current position, it now takes 30 seconds, or even less! Amazing. This is accomplished by combining GPS data with additional information stored on a Nokia A-GPS server, which includes positions of GSM cells/transmitters. And since it doesn’t only rely on the information received from the GPS satellites, it also works to a certain degree inside buildings!

All in all, the Nokia N95 just got even better!
