    Yes, harish

    It is supported by S60 phones of nokia.

    See the list of articles available in Java for location : http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ation_Articles

    You have to use Java Location API or Google Maps API for location.

    Interesting, and how do the Google Maps API provide you a location ?
    I'd stikc with JSR-179 devices and take into account that only the devices who have JSR-179 AND an integrated GPS will actually supply you with a gps position, cause there are devices with JSR-179 but without an integrated GPS chip... In that case coupling an external GPS receiver is easy (using JSR-179) but not really handy...
    Note: please don't send private questions to me, as I don't have time to provide private support. All such questions should be posted on public forums, where I and others can see and answer them.

    Hi, tiger

    Harish was talking about the location based application.

    I suggest him the list of articles from the wiki.
    One article is Google maps API which does not give us the location but according to the coordinates it gives static image (map).

    I didn't tell in my answer that Google maps API gives you location.

    What I told is You can use the Java Location API or Google maps API in your landmark application.(But it relates to the location)

    See the list of articles available in Java for location : http://wiki.forum.nokia.com/index.ph...ation_Articles

    Sorry, the way you wrote it it looked as both API's could be used for exactly the same purpose, but one is for getting the actual location and the other is to retrieve images (and other services btw) of a location.
    It's no biggy but if someone reads that like that it might be misleading, hence my response on it, just to make sure there was no wrong interpretation of your sentence...
