Hi kaa

could you explain more exactly how you are expecting Assisted GPS to work?

It sounds like you are expecting it to show changes in position before  
a GPS fix has been acquired.

My understanding is that A-GPS is intended to get a useable fix  
faster. If you know roughly where you are, it is easier / quicker to  
calculate exactly where you are. Then once you have an accurate fix  
using the GPS signal it is easier to spot and track small changes.
