Select the correct way to retrieve GPS info based on BB model

Currently, in my office we are working mostly with 8520, which, as many of you know, they dont have any GPS capabilities, but there are also some 8900, 8330, 8350i, even a torch 9800, which do have GPS, so i was wondering, how could i make that the program chooses the best way to retrieve GPS info based on the device model

 

Currently, 8520 are working using the google service, its not pretty accurate, but, it does the job, tried myself and retrieve quite accurate locations of where i was at a specified momment, but i want to use the GPS of the device if its present.

 

I was thinking on first making the device try CellFix, if it didnt do the work then try with the google service, in which case, maybe, only the 8520 would go this route
