Not every chipset vendor hosts their own SUPL server since Google provides SUPL server for their Android devices free of charge. Therefore, some of our partners doesn't have any A-GPS solution on FxOS, such as SUPL based AGPS and Extended Ephemeris solution. It would be useful for those partners to have an A-GPS alternative which don't need to use SUPL server.
Created attachment 8650355 [details] [diff] [review] [DO NOT COMMIT] [Experimental] A-GPS over HTTP for SPRD Mozilla had been worked with Spreadtrum on developing A-GPS alternative for Dolphin project. The experimental feature is called "A-GPS over HTTP". It uses ephemeris injection approach which is similar to Qualcomm's gpsOneXTRA. The #Attachment 8650353 [details] describes the concept of "A-GPS over HTTP". Since Dolphin took SUPL server rental as short/mid term solution, 'A-GPS over HTTP' was treated as low priority task. I'd like to upload the patch of prototype of mozilla side to Bugzilla for future reference.
