    Get Location Based on Geo Code?

    Since Nokia allows us to get our location co-ordinates natively via an API call, my question is how do we use these co-ordinates to get our address (even just getting the city/country would be acceptable)?

    Google reverse geocoding.
    Most services have an rest API for this. Maybe even Nokia, bit I haven't checked.
    You'll need an API key for most services.

    API keys usually mean OAUTH which can be a pain

    No, I used Google, Yahoo and OSM and none of them used OAUTH.

    Yep, it appears you don't even need an API key, see the following URL.

    Thanks for your help!
