Default Ally GPS -- true GPS or a-GPS?

Hi,

I'm considering getting an unlocked LG Ally and using it with a non-data (voice/text only) account. I did this with a different phone once and it worked great until the phone died. I don't need the data account, if I can get on wifi...

One of my questions is about the GPS on the Ally. The LG website doesn't explain any details. does anyone know if it is a true GPS or if it is a-GPS, which uses the cellphone towers to locate your position?

In order to get full functionality of the GPS and particular with no data account, I really need it to be a true GPS, and if it has a-GPS assist, I need to be able to disable that and just use the GPS.

I would install Garmin or some other third-party GPS program.

Can anyone let me know what type of GPS it has and if I should run into any problems doing what I've outlined here?

thanks
