Re: Location Based Services?

LBS is only used as a transmitter not a receiver. It's solely used for the Federally mandated E-911 service for emergency service about and around the US. LBS is used here in the US to find your location after a 911 (emergency) call has been placed. They can find you within a 2-3 mile in meters within a triangular area vs the old way where it gave them a 5-10 mile radius. I hope this helps.
