    Hi!
    Basicly this is controlled by the service layer and you cannot know exactly what source of data you have in each moment.
    Based on the value of GeoPositionAccuracy passed to the constructor of GeoCoordinateWatcher is more possible to use the GPS.
    If you use GeoPositionAccuracy.Default it only use the GPS if no other source is available, if use GeoPositionAccuracy.High it use the GPS in conjunction with wifi, cellular and a Microsoft location service.

    ok i get ur point. Now just tell me one more thing...is it possible in location service in windows phone that Location service dont use "Microsoft Location service" in case if no other medium getting location is available.
    I just want to keep only GPS, cellular and Wi-Fi.

    You dont have a method to exclude the use of the microsoft location services, but i think the location services serve mainly for additional data like proximity to Points of interest and this such of things...
