Tashanna let me know that the free SignalLoc application we told you about previously has been fixed to support the Bold. They also added Google’s API to find the coordinates for GSM cell sites. This app is for the geekiest of BlackBerry users who want to be able to map out the cell phone towers that they are connected to 🙂
The developer also added a nice and fast mobile friendly site to make it easier to download.

From the description:
Signal-Location Utility for BlackBerry is a convenient place to view network and location information.
- Radio Features
- SignalLoc provides you with major radio information on the main screen plus a detailed radio screen with all attributes included. If available, the latitude and longitude of the cell site is also displayed. If the lat/lon is avaiable, you can also show the cell site on a map.
- You can save and export cell sites to CSV or KML format and you can have SignalLoc automatically save new cell sites as you encounter them.
- GPS Features
- SignalLoc provides you with your current latitude, longitude, altitude, speed and heading on the main screen plus a detailed GPS screen that adds horizontal and vertical error and the number of satellites currently in view. You can also show the current location on a map.
- You can save and export locations to CSV or KML format and you can have SignalLoc automatically save locations for you when you’ve travelled a specified distance.
- Landmark Store
- Saved cell sites and locations (both considered landmarks) are stored in an internal database. From the landmark lists you can view landmark details, delete, export, and view them on a map.
- Device Details
- SignalLoc provides a convenient screen to view device details such as battery level, battery temperature, Battery voltage, PIN, and memory statistics. There’s also a memu option to view the system log.
