Hi Shawn,

How about N79? is it the same range or same type of internal gps chip?

Thanks,
KITT

  Let me clear up the information on the internal gps receiver.
  This receiver uses the sirf*ii chipset, a rather old chipset from around 
  2004 or so. This being the case the receiver will take longer to acquire a 
  signal and will have a harder time holding it. The accuracy on these 
  receivers isn't bad but anyone claiming a 1 metre accuracy is just wrong, 
  this isn't going to happen even if the receiver is using waas/egnos 
  correction. The waas/egnos setting in loadstone has absolutely no effect on 
  the internal gps receiver since this receiver is read-only loadstone can't 
  send any commands to it.
  You do not have to start nokia maps or any other application to activate the 
  receiver, loadstone does this itself. If people are noticing that this gives 
  them a signal faster maybe it's because the other programs are using agps 
  instead of gps.
  Agps will help to get the initial signal faster and if you have a data plan 
  and want this then agps is the thing to use. This is all agps does, it's not 
  a real-time gps correction system.
  According to the nokia manual for best gps receiver performance do the 
  following: start using the gps receiver with a clear view of the sky, this 
  means outside, not indoors. You'll also want to be standing still for best 
  results. Hold the phone at a 45 degree angle, if the phone has a slide such 
  as on the n95 then open it. On the n95 the gps receiver is located under the 
  0 key, on the n82 the gps receiver is located closer to the top of the 
  phone. Then wait until a signal is acquired. Sometimes this can take quite a 
  long time. Once a signal is acquired the receiver should hold it but this 
  will depend on other conditions that effect gps signals. If you are using 
  the n95 closing the slide may result in the receiver losing signal more 
  often.
  It's been reported that the receiver on the n82 works better than the one on 
  the n95. This is probably because of the different location of the receiver, 
  as far as anyone knows they're the same hardware.
