Nope, it uses info from a AGPS-server somewhere in internet. This info is 
location specific for reducing bandwidth. As it is somewhat paradox you have 
to know where you are to use (A)GPS, one way is to look at GSM to get an idea 
of your approximate position. As well you could enter name of next big town 
by hand. GSM isn't exactly related to AGPS.
