    Question Problem: NonSatellitePositioningMethods with TOO LARGE updateIntervalls

    I would like to use NonSattelitePositioningMethods to provide the alternative geo positioning indoor. I made an simple application just with a usage of NonSattelitePositioningMethods, to test the accuracy and first set updateInterval to 10 sek. BUT the updateInterval while testing is too large! I got no timeouts, everything working well but the updatetimes are not wokring as expected!
    I use use QT 4.6.3 and QTMobility 1.0.2. Here are some Parts of my code:

    //initial infosource call once in the beginning
    void LocationManager::initCell(){
         sourceCell = QGeoPositionInfoSource::createDefaultSource(this);
                if (sourceCell) {
    //enable cellpositioning when needed
    void LocationManager::startcell(){
            connect(sourceCell, SIGNAL(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)), this, SLOT(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)));
            connect(sourceCell, SIGNAL(updateTimeout()), SLOT(onPositionTimeoutCELL()));
            connect(sourceCell, SIGNAL(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)), this, SLOT(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)));
            connect(sourceCell, SIGNAL(updateTimeout()), SLOT(onPositionTimeoutCELL()));
    //disable cell if needed....
    void LocationManager::cellOff(){
        disconnect(sourceCell, SIGNAL(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)), this, SLOT(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)));
        disconnect(sourceCell, SIGNAL(updateTimeout()),this, SLOT(onPositionTimeout()));
    void LocationManager::onPositionTimeoutCELL(){
    qDebug()<<"cellupdate timeout";
    //my positionupdate slot:
    void LocationManager::positionUpdated(const QGeoPositionInfo &info) {
        if (info.isValid())
               QGeoCoordinate geoCoordinate = info.coordinate();
               latGPS = geoCoordinate.latitude();
               longGPS = geoCoordinate.longitude();
               altGPS = geoCoordinate.altitude();
               accGPS = info.attribute(info.HorizontalAccuracy);
               timeGPS = info.timestamp().toLocalTime().toString();
    Here is the output of that time when positionUpdated(const QGeoPositionInfo &info) slot is called (in format:hh:mm:ss). First you see the approx. device time, and as second "timeGPS" from positionUpdated slot :
    QDateTime::currentDateTime():  15:54:49     timeGPS: 13:54:44  
    QDateTime::currentDateTime():  15:57:49     timeGPS: 13:54:44
    QDateTime::currentDateTime():  16:00:49     timeGPS: 14:00:45
    QDateTime::currentDateTime():  16:03:49     timeGPS: 14:00:45
    QDateTime::currentDateTime():  16:06:49     timeGPS: 14:06:45
    QDateTime::currentDateTime():  16:09:49     timeGPS: 14:06:45
    SO from this output a can see i have updateintervals every 3 minutes on my device, so every 3 minutes positionUpdated is emited, but the timestamp of infosource shows that in reality coordinates are updated just every 6 minutes, and i would think if the coordinates are really still same, its not so bad. But its anyway too LONG!

    I just would like to understand where coming this 3 and 6 minutes from?
    And Why my setting of setupdateInterval of 10 sek(10000ms) are not working at all?
    I just cant find any explanation on my own, so i need help.

    Thank you in advance!
