I have to agree with Josh.

AFAIK, the AGPS interface to the GPS chip in the N810 is a serial link 
using a proprietary TI protocol. AGPS is intended for use in cellphones 
so it's unlikely to be implemented in a standalone device.

Hmm, just installed Diablo. No network traffic when starting wayfinder 
map - I thought the AGPS patch was going to look for an ephemeris online.

Hmm... as per 
there's an app agps-ui beta from
It uses supl-daemon to download something from 

Not sure at this point what effect this has - I'm indoors with too weak 
a satellite signal to get a fix. Looks interesting ... certainly agps-ui 
lets you choose your estimated position.
