Description

To get a LocationProvider that provides current speed and course, the criteria have to be set accordingly before retrieving the instance of LocationProvider:

Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
criteria.setSpeedAndCourseRequired(true);
LocationProvider locationProvider = LocationProvider.getInstance(criteria);

This works fine for S60 3rd FP1 devices. But if the setSpeedAndCourseRequired criterion is set in the emulator, the call of getInstance() always returns null.

The purpose of an emulator is voided if it doesn't behave like the devices it represents.
