Default Nextel's location-based services

Since GPS satellites need clear line of sight, they do not penetrate
any kind of building and can also be problems in cars and in heavy
tree cover.

The GPS data is determined by satellites and is independent of cell site
The ability to report the location requires a connection to a cell site.
Accuracy should be +/- 2 meter.

Nextel just officially announced LBS. I'm confused about the GPS
reliance. Is it not based on cell tower triangulation? Does this
mean it will only work outdoors in line of site with satellites? What
is the expected accuracy? 100', 10'?

Sprint is working on LBS as well. Is there's GPS or cell tower
