Problem with accessing the build-in GPS on nokia (N95)

i bought nokia N95 which has JSR-179 support;

however i couldn't communicate with the GPS receiver to get the location;

this is the code:

Criteria cr = new Criteria();
LocationProvider provider = LocationProvider.getInstance(cr);
Location location = provider.getLocation(30);
System.out.println("Method : " + location.getLocationMethod());
QualifiedCoordinates co = location.getQualifiedCoordinates();
if (co != null) {
System.out.println("Long: " + co.getLongitude());
System.out.println("Lat : " + co.getLatitude());
System.out.println("Alt : " + co.getAltitude());


Method : 0
Long: 0.0
Lat : 0.0
Alt : 0.0

i keep on getting zeros in the coordinates?

So we must insist that you follow our our naming policy ( Thanks!
I agree. Here's the link:
