I want to find the location of an android phone using GPS.Currently I am developing using Eclipse IDE and its android plugin.
Came across code to do this GPS code

But when I am trying to execute it does not display the longitude and latitude even after setting it through Geo command as well through DDMS

The Code is as below:


On the emulator, it prints Provider not available which is I guess cause
here location is null...
Please help in fixing this...

The emulator doesn't have GPS. You have to run the code on an actual device that has GPS capability.
