The article focuses on enhancing assisted global positioning system (A-GPS). Assisted GPS incorporates a fall-back solution in the chipsets that will use information from cellular network. Developers need more reliable than A-GPS as they bring more applications. Qualcomm has integrated Skyhook Wireless's technology into gpsOne positioning platforms so phones can tap Wi-Fi. Polaris Wireless' Advanced Hybrid Solution is designed to work with A-GPS system to provide accuracy across environment.
