BlackBerryLocation.getSatelliteCount() returns allways 12

Hey guys,


as the Subject says my problem ist the return value of getSatelliteCount() in BlackBerryLocation class.


It constantly is returning 12. Even if there is no valid fix and the values of lat, lon and alt are still 0. The satelliteCount ist coming up with 12.


Is there a reason for that? Does anyone know?


Thanks for replies
