    maybe 20 seconds but say if they are close. Im thinking of developing a mapping system based on my uni and if rooms are close to each other it may not be accurate.

    hi does anyone know how accurate longitude and latitude is. say for example if have two different locations which say are 5 seconds in walking difference would they have a different longitude and latitude?

    I also get a black screen using the emulator, but it's working fine on my phone.

    Hi, I also had the same problem with the Google API level 8. When I run the application it only shows a black screen and nothing happens. But the problem solved when I used the Google API level 10.
    And Thanks Travis, for the great work you do. Thanks a lot.

    Have you figured out anything on this? I seen one thing he didn't say, and thats long comes before lat. The 51643234 is longitude 7848593 is latitude. He has it set up like this (51643234, 7848593)… But even when i try putting in my long, lat it acts like its going to show up, then goes to the black screen with GoogleMaps logo at the bottom… If you figured out what the problem is let us all know.
