    Cell Phone
    LG VX5500
    Verizon Wireless
    Hey everyone,

    Here's what happened: my cell phone (LGVX5500) completely disappeared in my room.

    Fortunately, I have a bluetooth connection to it with my Garmin Nuvi 360.

    The phone is on silent, but the bluetooth is still turned on and I can connect to it with my portable GPS.

    What I've done so far is I've called my sister with my GPS (through the phone) and judging by how close I am to the phone with the GPS determines how clear the quality of the call is. By this logic, I've determined that the phone is somewhere in my room, since the call quality becomes garbled and poor when I leave my room and try calling from other places in the house.

    But how do I now increase the precision of where the phone is? I've tried walking around outside and in the room above to get an idea of what side the phone is on, but I think because of walls, furniture, etc. I could be getting a bad reading.

    I would use the bar graph for bluetooth signal strength, but it appears to be inaccurate most of the time, and updates VERY slowly.

    Any ideas?
