Hi Folks,

Could someone help me in understanding the contribution made by the 'Assisted' part of A-GPS.

It is my intention to purchase a Lenovo S6000 3G tablet. This tablet has A-GPS but it will not make or take phone calls. So my question is relating to the function of the SIM card in the tablet.

I intend to use this tablet in mainland Europe and as such I will be roaming. I will be using Sygic GPS with all required maps downloaded.

I am wondering if I can just put in a currently unused pre-pay SIM and not worry about any data roaming charges? Or does A-GPS require a fully functional SIM to work and consquently clocking up data roaming charges. Also I am wondering about the extent of the contribution made the Assisted part. In other words if I did not fit a SIM in the tablet will I end up with a sub standard GPS unit?

I have many thousand personal POIs and I was hoping to replace my Navigon 70 stand alone unit with a larger screen tablet.

Thanks for any help/advice received.
