I believe there is, yes. I gather it's to do with the speed of light and the device's ability to answer within the correct TDM slot. I think from memory it's around 35Km for 2G, which unfortunately doesn't provide a very narrow search radius :(


It seems what they really need is to borrow one of those Stungray devices from the NZ police ;)

 Is there a cutoff distance from the tower that the device will no longer be able to connect (e.g. if there is this helps narrow the search area at least)?
