Yes we're interested!
Show us what you have. I'd like to see things like these to be easy to
install & use, an ipkg package would be nice :)
When someone posted the agps program to I was inspired to try
it and it seems to work very well, it's fast to get the fix. If agps
would get the rough location information from opencellid I suppose it
would be even faster (though gprs connection is the thing that slows
down this a lot). But using only opencellid would give you a rough
estimation of the location quickly also when you don't have time to
run gprs to download the agps data. Then if only this rough location
could be given to GPS so apps (tango, navit etc) could use it..
