Blackberry GPS GeoLocation

I tried both HTML5 to gears and Blackberry.location to retrieve GPS signal and I discovered something strange. The blackberry.location works good and is very accurate, however it takes around 10 sec. to refresh. The Gears implementation (navigator.geolocation) on the other hand is very inacurate and jumps up to 200 meters per refresh.

 

One other issue I have is that how can I get quick updates for GPS latitude and longitude. Each request takes up to 10 seconds. The BlackBerry map, if set to navigation mode, updates olmost once every two seconds. How is that possible?

 

Thanks
