GPS not needed on all phones.

Some phones have a hall sensor and can detect magnetic fields with out needing the GPS functions. The one i saw was in a building and couldn't see the GPS satellites but knew where north was still.
I cant say if all phones are like the one I tested but it had a hall sensor.
