Specifying the GPS mode

You must specify the GPS mode to retrieve the location of a BlackBerry® device. GPS modes include autonomous, assisted and cell site.

  • Autonomous mode relies on GPS satellites only.
  • Assisted mode relies on GPS satellites and servers on the wireless network.
  • Cell site mode relies on the geolocation service, or the wireless network to provide the location information of the current base station.
