The smart point of Joe's idea that you don't have to act every time
you park your car - it is automaticaly a backup for your memory.
Interaction only when it is neccessary.

Please consider that the Neo1973 will have AGPS and I can imagine that
"TI GPRS" will support E-OTD
see my mail "Some links but also questions about AGPS"
AGPS localisation with the Neo should be usable even in a public garage
or inside your pocket.
