    It can't locate anything around me even though on the site there's like thousands in my area.. So how exactly does it work? What kind of ui does it use?

    this is hot, just make it a little more accurate than 1(wifi)-10(cellular) blocks away. and it would be great if it could move while your in a car..

    This app works well when wifi is on but I get lots of "NO known cells or wifi nodes in range" when wifi is off. It's still in early stages so lets give it some room to grow.

    Default Installed but...
    Triangulating from cell towers is how all the cell phone-GPS systems work. It's a feature they were forced to incorporate so 911 operators could locate cell callers.

    I installed the app but it couldn't find me, then froze my iPhone when I tried to cancel out of the screen.

    This app will either work by itself, or force Apple to release the version they've been working on.

    Update. I rebooted my iPhone, logged into Navizon. It found me in a jiffy. In combination with Google's real-time traffice here in the Bay area, no need for another GPS device. Way, way cool. Thanks Navizon.

    I tried it too and it found me off by a hundred miles and the next time it said I couldn't be found.

    I logged into the website and it said location information must be saved before you can use it on your phone... so try that to see if it works...
