GPS cell tower map
Ideated December 10th, 2013
This is a simple idea that I had many years ago that I still can't believe hasn't been implemented. 
An app that uses your phone's GPS to show a path to the nearest cellular service for your carrier.

If you are out of cell range in an emergency, it would be nice to be able to know how far and in what direction the nearest cell service is.  It is as simple as creating an app with a cellular coverage map and a simple direction/range display to the nearest service that will work with your phone.

Additional features could be to show the nearest x locations since there may be service further away that is easier to get to due to geography or other obstacles; or showing service by connection speed or quality; or push updates for new towers or out of service towers.
