    Cell id - AGPS - LBS

    Hello everybody,

    I try to do a AGPS application, I would like to know if there is a way to find more than one Cell ID.
    Actually I use CNetworkInfo but it seems that I can only take the connected Cell Id. I found a lot of things about LBS lib and Cell id but nothing about more than one Cell ID.

    thx,

    PtiRiv.

    Phone can connect with one cellid location at one time, so you can not search more than one cellid at a time, you can retrive cellid at particular time duration but at same time u can get only one cell id.

    Why do you need more than one cell ID?
    Neibouring cell measurements are not available through any public API. If you really need that, you should proceed with a technical support request.

    Have you seen any phone with more than one cell Id ???

    CTelephony::GetCurrentNetworkInfo() will give you a cell id of your phone, not one's who is near by you.

    A handset connects to a single cell but takes measurements on neighbouring ones for different reasons (handover, handset assisted positioning, etc).
    These measurements can be used to improve position calculation. But if there is an API to get them, it is definitely not public.

    I think PtiRiv intends to do some triangulation using different cell IDs.

    Am I right?

    Thx for all of your answers.

    kamalakshan are right, I try to do triangulation, and with only one Cell-Id it's harder, I will see with the non public API.

    LBS module automatically should use the optimum method (if it is set by user in menu->settings->general->positioning->positioning methods (AGPS, IGPS, Network based)). I am afraid if such a low level API would be partnered if there were. You could try.
