Maybe I'm missing something here, but is not an assisted GPS a step up?* When indoors it still gives you lat and lon. My Nuvi does not have that feature. My hand held radio with GPS needs a view of the sky and will not work in my basement.
That's what I thought when I first heard about A-GPS.* However, my personal experience just doesn't show it to be any better.* To be honest, I really don't use my iPhone for navagating.* I've got a Garmin in the car and a DeLorme USB puck on my laptop in the boat for primary navagating.* All other GPS' I use for backup.

I use both the iPhone and iPad WAY OUT of cell reception for iNavX, it runs strickly off the satelite reception...... thats what I am saying..

That's great info!* So they will work off of the GPS that's built in.* That's for iPhone 3GS and up, correct?* And of course the iPad, no?

Do you basically run it in Airplane Mode?* In other words, could you turn off WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. to save battery power?

Nevermind, I just answered all of my own questions on their website:

RE: IPhone Apps

There are certain apps that need cell reception...and some that don't. The reason for this is that some apps store data on their servers and not in your phones memory. Google maps or Earth is a perfect example. That would be a tremendous amount of data to store in your phone so they keep most of the data on their servers and cache the data needed at that particular time.
