    I'm meeting someone at an outdoor location, and he just sent me his cellphone CID as a method to locate where he is.

    He sent it in format:
    cid:XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX

    where each X is a hexadecimal number.

    How do I use this on my Android phone to find him?

    Thanks!

    Thanks.

    That webpage, and other webpages that I've found with Google searches, talk about the CID being a short number ... looks like 4 hex digits or about 5 decimal digits. The CID I'm trying to decipher is much longer.
