Accronym Glossary

  • GPS (Global Positioning System): An internal or external device that is used to determine its location in relation to three or more satellites orbiting around the earth. This device does not incur data charges, since your cellular provider's wireless network is not used for positional information.
  • A-GPS (Assisted Global Position System): An external assistance server that provides a GPS device information from the wireless network to enhance positioning accuracy, and response time when GPS signals may be low due to, but not limited to tall buildings, or atmospheric conditions. The assistance server requires data and does incur data charges, since your cellular provider's wireless network is used for positional information.
  • POI (Points of Interest): A location or point on the map that may be of interest to the user with applicable business information. Could be a gas station, the Toronto CN tower, or a Restaurant.
  • TTFF (Time to First Fix): The time required for a GPS device to acquire satellite information. To obtain a fix, a GPS device needs both Almanac (parameters for all satellites in the GPS constellation), and Ephemeris (precise orbital, and clock correction parameters) data to obtain your location. There are four start types:
    • Factory: GPS receiver has no Almanac information, and no Ephemeris information. Typically a 10 - 15 minute start up.
    • Cold: GPS receiver has some Almanac information, but no Ephemeris information. Typically a 60 - 90 second start up when the GPS receiver has been off for a period of 8 - 12 hours. Most observed scenario when GPS is not used often.
    • Warm: GPS receiver has all Almanac information, and some Ephemeris information. Typically a 30 - 60 second start up when the GPS receiver has been off for a period of 30 minutes.
    • Hot: GPS receiver has all Almanac information, and almost all Ephemeris information. Typically a 1 - 20 second start up when the GPS receiver has been off for a period of 15 minutes or less.
