    Location API Problem

    Hi all,
    I got code from this forum and tried to run on N95 for getting Altitude,Lat and long.But i am getting TimeOutException.
    Can anyone suggest how to run it successfully i also used the LocationListener interface.
    I have also included permisions.for location.below is my code
    package hello;

    import java.io.*;
    import java.util.*;

    import javax.microedition.io.*;
    import javax.microedition.midlet.*;

    import javax.microedition.lcdui.*;
    import javax.microedition.location.*;

    public class GPS extends MIDlet implements CommandListener,LocationListener{

    Command Exit = new Command("Exit",Command.EXIT,0);
    Form f = new Form("wait");
    public GPS() {}

    public void startApp() {

    f.append("geting gps data.");
    try {
    Criteria c=new Criteria();


    LocationProvider lp=LocationProvider.getInstance(c);
    Location loc=lp.getLocation(60);

    /*QualifiedCoordinates qc=loc.getQualifiedCoordinates();
    f.append("Alt: "+qc.getAltitude());
    f.append("Lat: "+qc.getLatitude());
    f.append("Long: "+qc.getLongitude());*/

    } catch(Exception e) {
    f.append("Exception: "+e);


    public void pauseApp() {}

    public void destroyApp(boolean destroy) {}

    public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable s) {
    if (c == Exit) {

    public void locationUpdated(LocationProvider lp, Location loc) {
    f.append("Location Updated");
    f.append("Location Method"+loc.getLocationMethod());

    public void providerStateChanged(LocationProvider lp, int arg1) {
    f.append("Location State Changed:");


    Thanks and Regards,

    Re: Location API Problem

    actually u might want to look throught the documentation of the API itself...
    there u might discover something regarding a setLocationListener method
    that should help u a lot

    it's very handy to learn the tools u are working with so that u wont be completely dependant on someone elses code and/or help...
