Did this video help you?

Diego V: normal

Presonance: Don't get excited. You're confused. A-GPS is "real" GPS that works faster than "plain" GPS because it uses cell towers to get a faster cold fix. iPhones can get a cold fix a lot faster because of this improvement. Every iPhone since the iPhone 3G and every iPad has a "real" GPS with the cell-assisted improvements added on.

Damian Turek: Turn on Endomodo Sports Tracker and GPS in airplane. Then set mode to 'running'. Share your results on Facebook :D

Ryan Ayres: What app are you using on the second half of the video?

Piercostanzo Vari: @amiga2000 Iphone 3GS,4,4S and both Ipad 3GS and Ipad 2 3GS seem to have a small chip GPS inside but all these device work using the A-GPS system but they made a new software application called WindowSeat perhaps this software is able to make an Apple device working on an airplane, using only the GPS chip disconnetting both wi-fi and 3GS connection.

ProudiPhoneOwner: Does my HTC DROID Incredible have a real GPS chip inside??? I would really appreciate if someone could tell me! :)

Cowboss1969: @jbohmdklg Turn off above 18 miles? That's more than 95,000 feet up.

skyboundmisfit: @D14BL0, The standard lapse rate of air temperature is approximately 3 C or 3.5 F per 1,000.

Graham Harrison: Awesome. Go HTC and go android.

brashmadcap: @D14BL0 I can't believe 3 other people were stupid enough to like this. It's cold up high.

Chris Boldon: @freakinhellnotagain Calm down fanboi. The iPhone doesn't have real GPS.

Robert Braun: @D14BL0 yes -86 degrees because the higher up in altitude you are the colder it is outside...duh

Robert Braun: @xAlexKiblerx if you look at his phone he has wifi enabled

William Stuart: @D14BL0 it measures the temperature outside of the plane

Raunaq Kumaran: @amiga2000 Good luck!!

amiga2000: @MikeonTU The iPhone rocks. It is my primary phone. It doesn't change the fact that it does not have a real GPS in it. Great for maps and other location based apps but for turn-by-turn directions, you need a real GPS so you don't keep missing your turns and exits.

amiga2000: @freakinhellnotagain Ignoring it in what way? I have an iPhone 3G, iPhone 4, iPad 1, iPad 2, and a handful of iPods. I love my iOS gadgets but none of them have a real GPS chip / antenna inside of them. It is why I have to carry around a Garmin Nuvi 265WT if I want accurate turn-by-turn directions. AGPS is fast, convenient, and reasonably accurate to tell you where you are but it is not the same as a real GPS.

ibjacked: @hettbeans My quick googling tells me that AGPS is not a negative. It is used to improve startup performance of finding your GPS location and can also be used to improve accuracy when there are problems getting clean satellite data. So, your comment, was it supposed to be an insult?

Dr Brian: So are you freakwits ignoring the current iPhone and iPad?

Rob Carter: @MikeonTU Too bad the iPhone's GPS wouldn't do crap-all without a cell signal. Move along fanboy, you bought the wrong phone.
