It's about reducing TTFF, not increasing accuracy [1]. Basically you tell the 
receiver which sats it should expect, so it doesn't have to check all 
possible "channels" and "download" the data from sat (AFAIK). See ephem and 
alm in uBlox paper.

[1] Increasing accuracy is differential-GPS, where you have a reference 
receiver at known position, so you can tell pos of 2nd relative to ref in 
sub-meter accuracy.

Also see: which I found just after 
typing the above.
