As an example, if the GPS reading shows that your car is driving through a park, then the software corrects it by showing your position as being on the closest road! That being said, the GPS receiver on this device if pretty accurate, and the A-GPS feature only adds to the accuracy.

Try enabling the bluetooth once(settingwireless manager>Bluetooth on)
I purchased P527, a week back, and yesterday i upgraded it to Windows Mobile 6.1. Everything goes fine while upgradation. After this when i checked System Information. It shows newly reflected information, but Bluetooth MAC Address shows as Unknown. Does this affects Bluetooth operation of the phone?
How I can find my original Bluetooth MAC Address? Can I set new MAC address to it, if yes, how?

Hi, i have got ASUS 527 just a week back and somehow i deleted satguide application, even setup file got deleted. Please help me out.
Prashant, Thanks for the suggestion.
WinRAR was able to open the ".bac" backup file. I found my SMS hidden inside an old backup file. The SMS are inside a file called "cemail_backup.vol". I infer from this that the SMS can only be stored along with the emails, and not separately.
Anyone who has upgraded to the India version of WM6.1, did you experience any problem with the "Streaming Player"? I can no longer play videos from youtube after the upgrade. My can of upgrade woes continues.. :(
Do you know any website from where i can download Brisbane(australia) GPS map. I havent started my GPS yet and dont know how to connect.
Do we have to pay for the service or is it free.

Did not take any backup as there was no important data.
Upgrade was smooth by following the steps mentioned in the upgrade guide.

I thinkg if the WLAN authentication is using certificates, if the WLAN client does not have a valied certificate users will not get a valied IP address.
To check if you are really getting connected to WLAN and getting a valied IP from you WLAN subnet, try using the following.
1. Download and install task manager(TM) v 3.1 on your PDA from http://www.freewarepocketpc.net/ppc-download-task-manager-mobile-v3-0.html
2. Start the task manager from programs>systems>Task manager
3. Once TM starts>Select process -> Ipconfig
4. If you are successfully connected to WLAN
There should be valied IP details from your WALN subnet for adapter TIWLANAPIL
Ipaddress, Mask and default gateway
5. If you got a valied IP, to check the connectivity >Select process >PING
6.Enter any host/domain name
(You may enter gateway IP to check local connectivity to your router)
If reply is coming your local connectivity is fine.
7. If you have internet routable IP or if your router is doing NAT to check internet connectivity.
Check the DNS lookup and enter host - mail.yahoo.com
if the reply is coming from mail.yahoo.com ->confirms your wirless connectivity to internet is fine.
hope this helps.

This is the case in my office, and they don't provide any certificates for WinMo phones. If that is the case for you, then you may be out of luck too! You will be able to connect to the server, but you won't be able to do anything with the connection.
My office however, does provide an alternate network for public use, which you can use after signing up for the service for free. Check with your office to see if they provide a similar service - if not, then GPRS/EDGE may be your only option.

The ASUS Backup program creates .bac files, which are basically simple Zip files - so, you can open them with WinZip or another similar software to view its contents. As for backing up the SMS's, you could have just used the "Copy to SIM" option before the hard reset, and used the reverse after performing the operation.
