When I access the GPS details screen and then Click the Escape button, the app hangs, and freezes my phone.

Unfortunately it's another bug I can't reproduce in the simulator. It's going to have to wait until I get a real device.

I had passed on the 8800 and pearl as I moved through and up devices, and took their word that the program wasn't working. I will verify in the morning. On the bold, the GPS works great and I know the tower location would not work because of the network specifics.
I did turn on logging on the program just in case it was helpful, otherwise I understand November 4th is when AT&T will finally roll out the Bold. The firmware has progressed through so many versions since the emulator was released, I can understand why it would not work. Good luck!

Any updates on a version that might work with the Bold? I had this on my 8820, it is a nice utility.

Wow RemyJ, thanks for the very quick reply. I have used your program on my 8820 and loved it. Thanks for all your hard work on this program. Do you plan to take it commercial?

Font size is extremely small, had to set it to 18 in the options. That's 10 more then I use normally to have the normal size. I had to do a battery pull before it would open. GPA details shows 0s for everything or not yet valid when switching to main screen.
I love it!!! Saved locations with Google Maps to get directions back there!!! Great for hiking or a favorite boat launch when there are no addresses.

you can use an application called FindMyLocation on handango to find your location using cell towers

CellID, yes. The rest aren't exposed by the RIM API.

RemyJ,

Thank you for building this for the Bold. Having the app back, especially with the addition of GSM cell location, is great.

FYI, I noticed that it seems that Loc information will stay the same when a new sector or cell comes along and there isn't Loc info for the new cell. In other words, it looks like the Cell Loc info may not age properly.

Let me check. I know it changes when the new cell site has a valid location but I didn't check when it doesn't. Also, since the GSM lookup is done from Google, it may take a little longer than normal to get the new location. If you exit from SignalLoc and restart it, how long does it take to get the location?

Oh yeah, it's also possible that Google is reporting the same lat/lon for the new site OR, the same physical base station is broadcasting two different cell ids.

If you give me the CELLID and LAC of the new and old cell sites, I can look them up manually.

It depends. Most of the time,when I exit and re-enter the app, the Loc will populate very quickly (or not at all). It does seem that the exit and re-launch will get information that did not populate after a cell change and continues app operation.
