Thanks in advance.
Use wireless networks has no affect whatsoever on the function or lock or accuracy of either standalone GPS or aGPS.
"use wireless networks" is an alternate method of location. It can also send location data to applications that want or need location (called LBAs or Location based applications). Usually navigation apparitions require GPS/aGPS, but plain google maps, weather programs etc can use the estimates provided by Use wireless networks.
Essentially the differnce on what you shoudl use depends on your RF situation. In short if you are under a roof, use wireless location, and if you have good view of >35% of sky use GPS. . I was asking one person to turn it off to test soemthing t. There seems to be no harm in leaving both on. I haven't fully tested if the preferences and way it attmpts each, waits to see, tries the other is perfectly tuned. Even within eitehr mode the device should be occassional attempting more precise refinement. eg within GPS, more sats. Within use wirless networks stepping from tower location, tower plus signal strength, triangualtion, hybrid, and occasional looking for sats.
