Which mode for GPS is the best for Blackberry verizon CDMA phone?

Hi,

 

I am developing a BB application. Right now I see there are 5 different modes available. 

 

They are:

 

GPS MODE CDMA ACCURACY OPTIMAL

GPS MODE CDMA DATA OPTIMAL

GPS MODE CDMA MS ASSIST 

GPS MODE CDMA MS BASED

GPS MODE CDMA SPEED OPTIMAL

 

If any one with prior experience can tell me which ones of these are the best. I want the GPS to work both indoors as well as outdoors.

 

Let me know if you know for sure if some of these modes don't work at all, so I can test and implement the remaining.

Just FYI, you're best off posting in the correct section of this forum for developers, rather than the general consumer device software sub-section.

Such as.. http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/bd-p/java_dev

 

I'll ask a moderator to move this post to accommodate you.

As an aside, GPS will always work best outside in a clear view of the sky. Some buildings structure and materials (metal roofing, etc.) will block satellite view of the handheld device, so all GPS detection is not always usable indoors... according to the building the user is in.

Hi Mr. Sanders,

 

I really appreciate your help. I will repost it in the java development section if the mod forgets to transfer this post.

 

Regards

No, don't repost it. Please don't duplicate posts in the forums.

The moderators here are quite a whiz at getting things done.
