As I understood the suggestion was in reply to : >> It is not a problem that user account is required when download u-blox online >> aiding data. > It is a problem since u-blox might go out of business and you might > not want to tell them where you are all time.

The problem is that data from u-blox is a proprietary format, and as far as I know, we do not know yet how to create the same data that can be pushed to the GPS chip. So for now we need to get this info from u-blox . Hence the account problem. I understood the suggestion just as way to cache this info in response to the availability problem for u-blox online service. _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list email@example.com http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
