LBS - retrieving location of another device



I'm currently trying to work on a location based app that would enable one retrieve the location of other users of the app, of course, that would be with their consent. I'm developing on the blackberry platform. I can't seem to find my way around that at the moment and i've tried searching for sample codes and stuff online but haven't made a headway. All i get is finished products for sale by companies. I also tried using the geofence api, but that just alerts you when the user/object leaves a specified perimeter. So i was hoping anyone here could assist with that.


Many thanks.

Re: LBS - retrieving location of another device

I would have thought the usual implementation of this would have each copy of the app sending their location to a Server.  Does that not work for you?
