Geosense is designed to use a hybrid mix of geolocation service providers and geolocation methods to pinpoint the most accurate location information possible including but not limited to WiFi triangulation, cell tower triangulation and IP lookup.”

The program is free of charge, though, so there’s no harm in giving it a try. And even if you don’t have any location-aware apps, the authors have created a simple Google Maps client which you may find useful. Set it to AutoRefresh on a laptop, for instance, and your current position will be regularly updated on a map.
