Well, then I'm happy I found another way of how gsm_map can be used :) I would be glad if you could get me some results on how accurate it got your location.

But cell_log is _not_ about finding _your_ location ...

It's about trying to find the location of the _bts_ and for that you
need a _precise_ location for you. (or else you're just gonna get
unusable garbage out ...)

cell_log would typically be used to create the database like google
has to locate (using another software) you only using the bts you can
