I'm interested. :)

After I've read this thread yesterday, I wrote a small C app to try
different approaches for automatic storage of the cell locations and
determination of the position.

The best approach so far seems to be to use rxlev diffs of overlapping
cells. The current average error here is around 100 meters (gps
position - calculated position). I need more data for further

If someone is interested, I will clean it up and put it online.
