ASP.NET (C#) Question

Is it possible to detect a mobile browser's GPS location?

I am making a web site targeted at mobile phones and would like to get the user's current GPS latitude/longitude when they visit my default page so I can show them results in their area. Is this possible using ASP.NET?

Answer

There are services that will give you a location based on IP address. It won't be as precise as the GPS data but without having an application installed on the phone it may be as close as you are going to get.
