the openbmap project proposes a Web API for getting location, based on 
the GSM data or WiFi.

The data is available for offline use too.

Your example about navit, has been a target use case for the project for 
a long time ;-) (speeding up the GPS fix).

The server side which used to be closed source has been released as open 
source, and the server is currently being transmitted to a new 
maintainer, after Nick decided to decrease activity on the project.
