When you request info from GPS only, how do you know it isn't using (or attempting to use) the cell phone or wifi signals to reduce the time the real GPS needs to home in? Is it a specific function call or call parameter?

With most things computery, its all very specific. There isn't a "where am I method", there is a LocationChange listener and you tell it you use the network or the GPS.

I am just about finished getting the Vector OSM maps to render properly in perspective mode with the compass off 0 degrees. This is a big step in the right direction. I tested the map tiles in perspective mode following my driving (changing direction automatically such that the top of the map was my direction of travel) this afternoon and all looked nominal.
