    Re: location string

    There is no part of the mobile phone which you could pass coordinates to and in return get the name of the location wherever you are, without having any maps downloaded.
    However you may succeed via doing that over the Internet, using a Web Service perhaps.

    Hello,
    As Wizards mentioned, there is no such API.. to get location name using lat/long
    But Even I am also interested to get the location name string ....
    In INDIA,Yes,Cell id based location can be possible...
    But still, I did not get the symbian C++ code/API to get the Cell broadcast tOPIC detection ....
    i have seen J2ME based code for retrieving location name which is broadcast on channel 50


    for lat/long based location name string, there is WEB service available from google.

    @swapnilb83:
    If talking about location string API, then there RMobileBroadcastMessaging API is available for getting location string broadcast on channel 50. It's defined and implemented in telmm.h and etelmm.lib, respectively, but it is not a public API. You should(must) get it from Symbian through becoming a member of Symbian Partner Network(SPN), which is not operational at the moment.

    Alternatively you would get GPS position, and then find REST service which with you could get the actual address for the location.

    Re: location string

    Cell id works in india most operators and there is lot of code available on the forum and NewLC using which you can get the cell id.

    As for the other part, wizard has already answered, without getting to a DB or a map provider, the lati/longi wont make much sense. Another thing you can do is to upload all those longi/lati data to your own web service, pick up the info from there and populate your own DB so next time those co-ordinates make sense for you. But then if the target area is large this approach would be useless, for a small city/area you can think on these lines though.

    Cheers

    The code is taken from that link (newlc) which is public to all. And i can not share any private library or header (etelmm).

    Re: location string

    To get access of that API you become a part of Symbian Partner Network, which is not operational at the moment. Otherwise you could wait for the Symbian Foundation to go online.
