Hi Rob,

This has nothing to do with the specification and has everything to do with the implementation.  One of the main goals of this specification, and to a large part API design in general, is to hide users (in our case, web content authors) from worrying about details such as how position data is obtained.

You may want to investigate how the device acquires position data on Verizon Wireless.
