    Location Based API (newbie)

    Hi,

    I'm new to location based programming. Basically, I need to get the location of the phone. but it doesn't have to be very accurate. Knowing which city the user in, is quit enough. or up to 5 KM in diameter accuracy.
    Is there is a way for the phone to know this, assuming the phone is NOT equipped with a GPS? or
    - Is there at least away for the phone to know (through Java/C++ API) the "Cell id"? and of course if I could get the longitude/latitude (even approximation) that will be awesome!

    Thanking You.

    Ahmed

    You can't get the location information without the GPS support. If you can get the NMEA message by other means, u can use the RPositionServer etc classes to retrieve the latitude,longitude etc....
