It would be really helpful, if we could create a location based trigger for ambiances. It should work with GPS (when enabled, but also with mobil cell when gps is disabled).

For example: I get near my work -> My ambiance could change to a work ambiance. The sound would deactive, the image change. During my way home the ambiance would change to max volume, that I can hear calls. And back home, I'll get some home ambiance.

Not necessarily essential, but really cool idea! :) Never have to worry again about going into silent, out of silent etc again when going to work/ leaving from work.

If it can be done with cell location only then the battery wouldn't drain as quickly. A very cool idea indeed.

Maybe GPS would consume too much power? Cell IDs might be difficult as the phone usually changes cells frequently, you have to manage the valid cell clusters and IDs can change as well. WLAN SSIDs are probably better to determine the approximate location (even if not connected). I also like to adjust the ringing volume based on certain locations. It would be even better if it is adjusted based on environment noise. But this could be a separate feature.

Loving this idea!
