    Default GPS (ish) Comes to the iPhone!
    Navizon, which just showed up in Installer, is an assisted GPS system which triangulates your location based on the cell towers you are near. Some have reported success with this, while others have not.



    I am on T-Mobile, and it is giving me an error: "Unable to locate any known cell towers". Could it only work with AT&T? Or am I just in a lame place? Your thoughts... Please post your area along with your results.

    UPDATE: Works fine on T-Mobile, assuming you're in an area it knows. Not sure yet where it gets it data, as far as where it will know and where it won't. But I went down near the Tampa International Airport, and it definitely knew that area. So it works on T-Mobile!

    It gives me the same error PF and I'm on the standard AT&T/Cingular. So not sure why. I did read that you can somehow upload readings in your area to help the system (perhaps we don't have any readings in our area?) - but have no clue how that would be accomplished.

    I am on AT&T as well. I get:

    Unable to Locate
    Your location could not be identified. No known Cells or WiFi nodes in range.

    I went to hit OK and it froze up my phone.

    Works flawless when I turn on my wifi and connect it to a spot, but I get the same "can't find cells or nodes" error when wifi is off. Btw, I'm running ATT on one and T-Mobile on my girlfriend's. Both get the same results.

    I get the same error on AT&T, but it works when it's on WiFi

    Wifi worked for me on Rogers... but didn't work so well with wifi off. "No connection to the server..." and it hung.

    Seems pretty obvious, as it is real easy to get a location based on a wifi IP address... the triangulation with cell towers seems a lot more difficult. Expected results...?

    I had/have wifi on .. but it's at the office and the firewall could be blocking some ports - will try at home later tonight.

    My phone is 1.0.2 and with AT&T standard.
    I loaded this application via Installer and it loaded without any problems.
    I ran the program and it asked for a username/password. Of course I did not have one. So I touched OK and it took me to their website and registered.
    I went back to the application and inputted my information.
    I had the WiFi off, it showed the warm fuzzy but would not connect. I went to the settings and turned WiFi on, connected to a known working hot spot.
    It took a while for it to connect, roughly 2 minutes, but finally showed a lock.
    The location was shown using Google maps. The location was off about .5 miles.
    Although it is not precise it is a start!!
