AGPS is an improvement over "plain" GPS, allowing faster position
locking when additional data (AGPS = Assisted GPS) about satellite
positions is available (can be downloaded from the Internet for
Every AGPS module behaves just like a normal GPS module, as long as this
data is not available. This also is how it is used in the current
OpenMoko software stack.

And yes, the Freerunner has the better one, an AGPS module. :-)
