There are two types of AGPS: one that  is downloaded on realtime  when the 
receiver is turned on and  another that is  downloaded to the receire and 
stays valid about a week or so.

If  the latter one could be made totally automated; ie user  only plugs 
receiver to the usb port  and it will update the almanac automatically it 
would be useful.

I haven't found that extra minute to wait for a  gps fix any major issue.
