GsmMap without GPS

As I said in a previous post, I don't see why I need to have a GPS to get an approximation of my location. I then suggested using an open source cell list or Google API.
So, I have just finished writing a program that parses your kml file from the gsmmap, send the request to Google and it will get your approx location (just like Google Maps on your mobile) and write the result in another kml file.
The program is written in Java. To run it under windows: 

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_17\bin>java -jar glocation.jar
Usage: glocation -i <path to input file> -o <output file>

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_17\bin>java -jar glocation.jar -i c:\gsm.kml -o final.kml
