How does the Nikon AW100 use the A-GPS file to help determine position faster?

and why not calculate the satelites position based on date and time - they still follow Keplers laws?
and here what i posted in an other thread - does someone have the same exprience?
because i recommended this camera to many of my friends i feel i should also share some negatives.
i was wondering why sometimes the GPS does not lock on at all and other times it locks within seconds.
at least with my camera i can stand behind the following finding:
GPS works great with fully charged battery but basically never locks on with only 1 battery indicator visible. I do have my own experimental evidence for that.
i think the nikon engineers could have done better in 2 ways.
1. have the battery indicator indicating more meaningful battery levels (guys learn from Sony, they do a much better job since more than 10 years)
2. make the GPS less sensitive to the battery charging level - in fact it is ridiculous to have a problem like that one
said all this, with the sudden battery death syndrom one needs to have a second battery ready anyway.
still a nice camera with the worldwide high resolution maps - i was recently in germany and japan and it had all the streets to most useful details - ha, why not adding street names also?
