comment How does Google Maps estimate my location without GPS?
So the phone communicate with the cell towers to know the position with the GSM protocol ? I understand it's less accurate but it means it should be possible to locate me anywhere (which doesn't seem to be the case in Google Maps). Or maybe I need also to have the 3G enabled ?

Thanks but I'm not sure you can achieve a 50m accurate location with cell tower triangulation

Ok thanks, nice trick, just a bit terrifying for the privacy... Concerning the cell towers there is something I don't get. If I don't have wireless and just know the cell id, how can it find the corresponding position of the tower. I guess there is a cache of last seen but so for new ones, no way to know ?

Thanks but how can they match a BSSID and a location at first ? I've a new wireless hotspot in my house for only about a month and it's already inside the database...
