Hi Risto,

you may have a look at:

They use the opencellid data to centre the map, for what I have understood.

Otherwise I am working on a D-Bus service which will offer your location 
on your phone, note/net-book etc through an embedded database. (If 
anybody is interested in this, he may contact me).

Is this what you were looking for?
