Within the KitchenSink, does the getCurrentPosition work for anyone? This method is supposed to work within the simulator, right?
The location event listener won't fire. So, you won't get updates on your position. But, generally you should be able to get the one-shot location information. I'm not sure if you're doing Android or iPhone. On Android, I had to manually set the location one time, from there it's cached (forever it would seem as I haven't fiddled with it and the one-shot location data is still there after several restarts). See my answer in the big long tips thread for the way to manually set a location in the Android simulator.
i read a similar thread on this very forum a long back….and the solution was
open up ddms and find the emulator number such as emulator-5560…
now open up cmd prmpt window and type the following telnet command
telnet localhost 5560
