inViu OpenCellID collects the GPS positions of mobile base stations for the open source OpenCellID project ( The data collected in this way is freely available to all.

The project goal is to gather as many GPS positions of mobile base stations as possible. With this data, mobile phones and other devices without GPS or devices momentarily without GPS reception (e.g. in buildings) can be tracked free-of-charge.

In addition, cell localisation can often replace GPS tracking or add to it and at the same time reduce the phone’s power consumption.
By May 2012 the cell gatherers had already fed in more than 1.3 million different mobile base stations into the database with more than 150 million measurements.
Every day several thousand base stations are added, collected by OpenCellID fans all over the world.
Whether on holiday or at home, it’s fun to discover new base stations and add them to help complete the database.
ENAiKOON is absolutely committed to privacy protection:
this ad-free app collects no personal data from the phone. The GPS positions of base stations are saved without linking them to the phone. Although the downside of this is that we can show no scoring lists for active stations, it does ensure that the GPS data remains absolutely anonymous.
So that no mobile charges arise, the collected data can be buffered on the phone and transferred later by Wi-Fi.

If required, the app can be configured to start automatically when the phone is switched on and you don’t have to remember to activate cell collection every time.

This ad-free app contains help texts and detailed information on all saved values in all four languages.
