What do you think about defining "position" as depending on distance to certain GSM towers as well? Is less battery-consuming than turning on GPS and waiting to get a fix, and it gets a rough distance to the desired point. I.E. while looking for "home" do not attempt to get a GPS fix until the GSM towers you see are the same that you see in "home"; as well you won't need 1m precision always, and when you don't the GSM triangulation could be enough...
