The mobile network providers have provided the most widely used means of communication. In an attempt to expand on this frontier, we propose and develop a GPS-based Mobile Service Locator System to help individuals in different walks of life, find addresses and locate their services of interest using their mobile devices. Notably, the proposed system is able to determine the proximity distances between the user and the locations of the desired service. It is flexible and extendible to easily incorporate additional mobile service providers and new services. A main point of departure from existing similar systems is that it is the GPS-based rather than the mobile-based service provider to allow for a more accurate location calculation.
