Tata Indicom QuickFinder Navigator and Quick Finder Maps

Never lose your way, that’s what TATA Telecom is saying. On Monday 20 April, TATA Teleservices has launched its location based GPS service. This is a unique type of service named as QUICKFINDER A-GPS (Assisted Global Positioning System) service. The first-of-its-kind location-based service will be available to Tata Indicom subscribers. This technology is powered by Qualcomm’s QPoint solution and gpsOne technology integrated into Qualcomm chipsets. A-GPS service uses the most advanced positioning methodology to provide users with precise position information, including inside buildings and structures, Mr Anil Sardana, Managing Director of Tata Teleservices Limited, said.

Present GPS technology work best only when the GPS antenna is visible to open sky and can fail to determine the users first fix point if the antenna is not visible or is only partially visible. Furthermore, conventional GPS systems may take between one and 10 minutes for first start point, even in the case of open sky. QUICKFINDER overcome these problems with a hybrid system that uses both A-GPS and gpsOne technology to deliver fast and accurate results. It will provide users start position in seconds and with accuracy up to and within 5-10 meters.
