The mobile devices provide dynamic behavior in different geographical locations. The location based information plays integral part for enhancing the performance of mobile devices. The right selection of location improves the smooth transition process of context aware services to mobile devices. For example location based information services cover the shopping, travel information, entertainment, different navigation, event information and tracking services. All of these services depend on the actual position of the users. The efficiency and smooth transfer of data contexts also relate to the type of services available to mobile devices. Therefore, the proper selection of technology and positioning methods need to be chosen carefully to obtain the desired accuracy. Several models have been proposed to improve the performance of mobile devices. This paper proposes new approach of location based overlapping that augments the performance of mobile devices and also provides better quality of service (QoS). The proposal is supported by an algorithm that helps to choose the best location for mobile device where signals are stronger. The mobile devices select strong signal- providing base station and each mobile device is free to select any overlapped area. To prove the claim, the proposed model is simulated in ns2 and findings are compared with existing models.
