Abstract

Mobile devices and wireless data connectivity are getting more and more common nowadays. In this networked world there are going to be dozens of new applications. Location Based Services will play a major role in this area. Especially, with the current and upcoming UMTS enabled mobile phones these applications are going to be available to a larger number of customers. The most promising approach to get accurate position data on a phone is to use GPS or the enhanced Assisted GPS which is part of the UMTS standard. We developed a mobile game especially designed to demonstrate the possibilities of an Assisted GPS empowered mobile phone.
