    I read somewhere that triangulation is not possible on the CDMA network. If i were to enable the gsm feature on my storm would triangulation work?

    Well I had in mind any program that tries to use the gps. I was hoping to be able to be located when I'm indoors.

    Phone in a bomb threat. I bet you the FBI will triangulate your position with the quickness.

    That would be some triangulation... I have noticed that google maps found me while I was in my house within 4 meters

    Probably not a good idea since I work in a hospital. Props to them though if they could get it right because that place is a mass of steel and concrete.

    That would be GPS. Seems those braindead programmers got some much needed help from Verizon Guy on their forums and they changed their code to finally work with the open Storm GPS in version 3.0.2.

    Should it really have been that difficult to have working soon after the phone was out? I mean how different is the storm than any other blackberry?

    It was difficult for Google because they wrote the GPS API calls in a perticular way.

    google does do triangulation when the gps is not available (indoors) so the answer is yes, you can get your location based on triangulation (usually within 1500 meters) using google maps on your cdma storm!

    GMM "My Location Beta" DOES NOT do triangulation. We've discussed this like a billion times. It's just estimated distance from the "single" tower you're connected to.

    Nothing really does triangulation. They do square'ations and if you're really lucky, you they do pentagonations on your ***.

    How is the estimated distance from the tower determined? An easy way would be to detect signal strength but that would really work in reall world situations would it?
