Re: wifi can also be used to speed up GPS lock time

True though I don't know of any handheld GPS devices without wireless that lock quicker. It could be an inherent limitation of the technology. The only GPS devices I know that lock quicker are either using A-GPS or the initial position trick that automotive GPS units use. Samsung could use the trick that the iPad uses via wifi though I would not count on a firmware upgrade given past history.

I'm going to get a handheld GPS+GLONASS receiver soon so it should be interesting to see whether the addition of GLONASS improves lock times.
