Get device position by Cellular Antenna Base Station. Cell finder

This post is a continuation of
https://community.thunkable.com/t/expiration-time-for-application/9775
that post started with “Expiration time for application” but then it was diverted to Cell finder.

  • When our phone is in a cellular net, we get several parameters:

MCC (Mobile Country Code), MNC (Mobile Network Code), LAC (Local Area Code) and CellID.

  • With those parameters we can get position Base Station and therefore approximately our position.

  • With this extension com.Localizacion.aix (6.3 KB)
    we can get:

Then in other web page we put those parameters and get our location:

http://cellidfinder.com/

  • With this link can get lat and long:

Do You have any AIA for test?

@fabioirmao

Here an example, you can optimize my code, it is only a rapid code.

You can put those numbers in http://cellidfinder.com/cells and get Station Base position.

Those numbers in https://www.mylnikov.org/archives/1059 get Lat and Long

With Lat and Long and Google maps get your approximate position in map.

im getting error

Data base mylnikov doesn’t contain you Station Base

https://www.cell-id.info/?lang=en

when i replace the valve 11 with 7 i t fine

:fu: link give give my location


but app not given that

My extension code get OK mnc, mcc, lac, cellid but data base of mylnikov doesn’t contain your station base, and doesn’t return lat and long.

for lat and long . i can use location senser ?

Location sensor works with GPS (satellite)

Phone signal mnt, mmc,cellid… get numbers from Station Base (not satellite GPS)

the tricks is get your position without GPS, only with phone signal.

You can open Google map, simply get your lat and long by sensor location and then
