This is a little strange for me. It doesn't seem to fit in my 8130 screen properly.
The only things I see labeled are Time, Net, Svc, Id/Ch, and Speed, but Speed has no value. There are values for signal. No labels nor values for Loc. I have GPS enabled, is that all I need? On the bottom right of my screen I see a little arrow pointing down as if I can scroll, but I cannot.
Finally, when I look at "View Details" in my Saved Cell Sites, the values for Lat, Lon, and Alt are all 0.0
What am I doing wrong?

It may have to do with the font you use. Change to BBMillibankTall and size 7 and see what happens. I'll have to put an option for selecting a font specifically for this app.

Also, make sire that in Options, you have the "Carrier provides cell site location" checked. You'll have to restart the app for this to take effect.

About integrating Google Maps, another 3rd party that is promoted among the BBF community is Poynt. In their last release, which was actually released earlier today, Google Maps is now an option for mapping. Previously, BB maps was the only option. Just letting you know, if you haven't, it's possible!

Also, I tried exporting my saved cell sites for the first time. It took a few tries just to get it to actually export. A few times I would enter a file name, click OK, and the file appears to be showing in the File Explorer subscreen. But when I try exporting again to make sure it's there, it's gone! I got it to save somehow eventually. I hooked it up to my computer, browsed to my SD card, and I found the file, but it had no file extension. I manually added ".kml". Finally, I opened the file through Google Earth.. and you know what I saw? It says my cell tower is in the Atlantic Ocean, just south of Ghana. I'm actually in a suburb north of Chicago, IL. WOW! I'm attaching the file here so you can see for yourself.

Thanks for tip on Poynt. I'll take a look.
Bug in "Save File". I'll fix today.
Do you have "Carrier provides cell site location" checked in options? Does the cell site location display above the separator line in the main screen?

Oh, I figured out how to get it to really export. After typing in the file name and clicking OK, you see the file in the File Explorer subscreen. Press the "Enter" key and it will save it.

I do have "Carrier provides cell sit location" checked in options, and the cell site location does display above the separator line. The cell site location only shows up when I have GPS enabled, which doesn't make sense to me, but that's how it's working for me.

I'll have another version out in a few hours.

When you have GPS disabled, you're really disabling the entire Location Based Services bundle and it's the same APIs to get both GPS and cell site locations.

Realiability on getting GPS inform seems to be little off on 8830. Most times it just says "Not yet valid".

Just to clear things up, does this program tell me which cell tower my phone is currently using?

I'm using Sprint as my carrier.

Try build 720. I just uploaded it. It has some GPS acquisition fixes.

Assuming you have an 8830 then with Sprint, you get cell tower information including it's location.

I just installed the new release and found the text on the screen alittle on the minute side... So, I go to :
Options >Base font size > 20 > exit > save

Closed app, restarted and re-checked settings were saved.... BUT, I still see "minute font size" on screen... Any ideas?
