Assisted GPS: Uses the wireless network to retrieve GPS satellite information. Assisted GPS can achieve a fast retrieval of the first GPS fix.
Autonomous GPS: Uses the GPS receiver on the device to retrieve location information. This mode can’t be used indoors or in close proximity to many physical obstructions, and can take several minutes to fully synchronize with four or more GPS satellites for the first GPS fix.
Simultaneous GPS: Allows a device to receive both GPS and voice data at the same time, which allows service providers to offer location-based services.


BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.3


Accelerometer: Required to sense the orientation, either portrait or landscape, of the device and to enable the corresponding UI orientation.
Magnetometer: Used to provide information on the direction that the user is facing. The Compass app uses the magnetometer to determine your direction relative to the Earth’s magnetic poles or to true north.
Ambient Light Sensor: Controls the brightness of the display based on ambient light availability and brightness for optimum display visibility and energy efficiency.
Proximity sensor: Used to prevent unintentional data entry when the device is pressed to the face during a call.
