Yes, I know what the last line says.

Thank you for the heads up, I have a C6806, and my GPS lock is rapid without this app,

However, I travel to the UK to visit family on occasion and the last time I did so, I failed to get a lock with my NA Samsung Galaxy Note (SGH-i717), so this app should be useful the next time that I'm over there by letting me switch my GPS region set to one more compatible with that location.
