# Archived:Calculating the distance between two locations in Flash Lite

We do not recommend Flash Lite development on current Nokia devices, and all Flash Lite articles on this wiki have been archived. Flash Lite has been removed from all Nokia Asha and recent Series 40 devices and has limited support on Symbian. Specific information for Nokia Belle is available in Flash Lite on Nokia Browser for Symbian. Specific information for OLD Series 40 and Symbian devices is available in the Flash Lite Developers Library.

This code snippet demonstrates how to calculate the distance between two locations using the Location Platform Service for Flash Lite supported from S60 5th Edition onwards.

Code ExampleTested with
Devices(s): Nokia 5800 XpressMusic

## Postconditions

The distance between the source and destination is displayed.

## Example application

The following sample application has been tested in Nokia 5800 XpressMusic (S60 5th Edition, Flash Lite 3.0): File:FlashLite Calculating The Distance.zip
