The article presents information on a host-of complexities that have emerged from migrating location and positioning systems from vehicles to mobile phones. Developers are using complementary systems alongside global positioning system to provide good positioning information in environments that are challenging for satellite navigation. Cell ID and cell triangulation methods provide good coverage in densely populated areas, although they are less accurate than satellite systems.
