The bill incurred while using GPS is because of the Assisted GPS (A-GPS). A-GPS uses triangulation method, which uses the cellular base stations to pin-point your location, cutting down the time for the satellite to lock-in to your position.

You can disable A-GPS from your phone's GPS menu, not from the Garmin software itself.

for GPS hardcore, long waited garmin phone



Bump: different with phone GPS & stand alone GPS is the channel supported for sat.
if not mistaken phone GPS only 8 channel niah, while stand alone GPS is 20 or 22 channel.

for above mention nuvifone is combined stand alone GPS & phone function.

what naziaf said is correct. you been charged coz under your 'positioning method' option you have checked 'assisted GPS' open. If you only use GPS in outdoor, you just need to check 'Intergreated GPS' open.
