> Yeah it's actually not. As an emt I've had to use such information as part of my job on the regular(comes over mapped on an MDT), and I've seen the magic software at work in dispatch centres.

Sorry, but that's not the software I'm talking about (that the company I work for sells). Real time geolocation is harder, but getting better, and can still be better than "it's somewhere in this cell". Near real time (15-20 mins) can be scarily accurate. EMT stuff will be behind the times, no doubt, and is limited by the interface back to the network operator.
