    You would use that if you were not in a VZW service area. If you leave that unchecked it uses data from VZW cell towers to assist in tracking satellite gps signal.

    If my memory serves me right its just strictly satellite GPS.

    Verizon location uses cell towers to triangulate where you are.

    Google uses wifi mapping from hotspots to know where your are.

    And stand alone GPS is strictly satellite GPS signal for mapping your location.

    I hope that helps

    Thanks, guys! So... hmmm... on a regular, daily basis, should the box be checked or unchecked, then?

    And when I am using the GPS for driving navigation, should the box be checked or unchecked?

    Thank you!

    Unless you were in the Australian Outback (not steakhouse) I would leave standalone unchecked.
