Thanks to Nokia for the great input, this works VERY well :-) (!!!)
I will shortly post an update of maeMaps on tmo including this function.

Can you explain it to me how it works in terms of accuracy? My first queries only gave me a result in the center of Zurich, over 100 km off my current position. Was that through Google or over the Maemo Geolocation API? (Provider/Cell based?)
On subsequent tries however, the GPS was active and gave perfect information (gotta round down these 15 decimal places of lat/long a bit :-).
And what happens if I call getCurrentPosition() using the enableHighAccuracy PositionOption?

Thanks again!

Best regards

[BTW: GPS get really quick and good fixes, even inside my house with closed blinds]-
