Ajinkya, 20 May 2010Who will load the maps? Internet connection is required to load the map details of location de... moreGood going there mate.... The problem here is that ppl often confuse network access with internet or gprs connection. I have map of india installed on my 5233 through ovi suite from my pc. Honestly, i have no problems what so ever with my network based positioning and i can work 100% offline if i am using just the maps and positioning. The only difference is accuracy. With network based positioning, the location accuracy is very low compared to a-gps and gives information of you general locality. This same data is used by 5230 as well and uses it as raw information for locking onto nearby satellites. This is known as assisted gps. As part of the job is done by the network tower itself. The phone acquires the tower's cell id to get a general information in its position. Later on the gps takes over and directly connects to the satellite for further lock on the phone's position.

Anonymous, 20 May 2010Someone wrote in this forum that "5230 has A-GPS which can directly contact satellites...... moreWho will load the maps? Internet connection is required to load the map details of location detected by satellites. In short, satellites detect the position and simultaneously phone keeps fetching the location details unless your position is stationary. This is why data connection is required. But once you allow mapping software like Ovi maps to load maps of desired location such as your city, then those details will get saved in cache memory and next time you can put Ovi in network offline mode and enjoy the GPS without connecting to network. However when you will go to new place which is not previously loaded by Ovi Maps then you shall have to connect it to data connection again to load new details. This is the way GPS work. For example I live in Pune, India and I had fetched mapping details of my city through Ovi Maps. So now on I dont need to connect my phone to network to use GPS. My phone just connect to satellites, tracks my position and I can navigate with the help of presaved details of my city. Hope you undertood.

Anonymous, 20 May 2010I bought one in bangalore. I dont have GPRS/internet activated in my sim. is it not possible ... moreNo need of gprs. 5230 directly connect to satellite. But you may have to go in open space. Read the manual it says it may take few minutes to several minutes to connect to satellite. For me, it works within 2 minutes. Also, I never use gprs though I have it.
I bought one in bangalore. I dont have GPRS/internet activated in my sim. is it not possible to get positioning info and voice guidance using GPS (integrated GPS) alone?
I tried getting positioning info from indoors. I couldn't get any satellite signal.
