I am developing an application which will determine in which building/college/University you are?
Then it will find the available labs in that building. I have the coordinates of those places.
I want to know that once I get the current location in terms of longitude and latitude how will I get the name of that place?
I have seen some applications which checks you in when you go to some coffee place or pubs.
I looked the Geocoder class and I think that can help me in getting what I need.
Is anyone here aware of the problem of Samsung Galaxy GPS system?
If yes is there any solution to that?
I have tried some approaches but nothing worked.
The GPS system is not reliable. It stops working or I should say it works randomly.
There is a lot of buzz in the community regarding the same. A quick Google search will yield thousands of complaints.
Is it possible to get the directions as well using the longitude and latitude.
I want to locate the user on his co-ordinates and then other objects in a plane by maintaining their relative positioning.
Anything related to "getting directions" will likely involve calls to the Google Maps web service. I don't think Android comes with an API that wraps those calls in Java classes, but such classes probably exist somewhere out on the net.
