Hi everyone.

A few days ago, I was surfing the web and I found out a project that works over most mobile phones which lets you know where your friends are in real time and update your status in twitter. It´s called Dimdix.

On their website they say you don´t need a GPS system to detect your location. Does anyone know how this works?

I´m using a Motorola L7 and amazingly it detected my location.

I cannot stop thinking of all the things I could do with it.

If anyone wants to take a look you can go (www.dimdix.com)

Thanks,

Regards, Very Happy

It's actually Android Location, a project started some while ago. And they seem to be stealing code Smile http://www.android-freeware.org/download/android-location#comment-27... I guess they just connect to Google Maps Mobile server and get location information from there.
