    String string = "not found";
    try {
    Location l;
    LocationProvider lp;
    Coordinates c;
    Criteria cr = new Criteria();
    cr.setHorizontalAccuracy(500);
    lp = LocationProvider.getInstance(cr);
    l = lp.getLocation(60);
    c = l.getQualifiedCoordinates();
    if (c != null) {
    // Use coordinate information
    double lat = c.getLatitude();
    double lon = c.getLongitude();
    string = lat + "-" + lon;
    } else {
    string = "Location API failed";
    }
    System.out.println("location=" + string);
    //display.setCurrentItem(new StringItem("lat/lon", string));
    } catch (Exception e) {
    System.out.println("exception in check location=" + e.getMessage());

    Re: location request timed out

    Hi,
    Is it possible to get the date and time by Location api?
    Actually I dont want to use system date time as it can be changed manually by user. So I want to use any server time that should not be controlled by end user.

    Please help me.
    Realy apreciate any suggestion.
    Thanks..

    Just make a system HTTP call to any server in the response from server you will get date and time

    Yes it is possible without GPRS but most phones connect to internet to take advantage of A-GPS

    Re: location request timed out

    Hi,

    I am testing my application on Remot Device provided by Nokia Forum. But still it is throwing the same exception.

    I think the remote device must at any center location, and I am just using remotly that device , So I think it should return the latitude of the location where it is placed?

    Please verify me. Ill be very thank full to you.

    Thankssssssss

    Hi there Amit,

    Yes, E5 has an integrated GPS receiver and also has the assisted A-GPS support.

    Best,
    Marko
