Android :: Displaying Route Between Two Points On Map
Dec 6, 2009
I'm trying to develop an application which display the locations of contacts on a map (a Msn-like but for geo-localisation). I search to display a route between my own location and a contact location I want to join but I find yet no solution to do this. In the Android API and Maps add-on API I just find classes to display and listen Location, Distance, GeoPoint, etc., but no possibility to display a route between two points. Is it possible or not provided by the API?
I can able to show the route between two geo points in android using google map.Now i want to know how to guide the user like turn right ,take left like wise should display message. How can we achieve this?
I understand the notion of overlays and all, but what if I want to display thousands of points on a map?The map becomes unresponsive after a few hundred OverlayItems are added.What's the best approach for doing this?
I am trying to write a code about catch lat. and long. points with the GPS, actually I am using the shell with the commands "geo fix" because the DDMS doesn't work in linux apparently, I am using this scripts:
I want to make a apps that check what's the nearest place from where the user is. I can easily get the location of the user and I have a list of places with latitude and longitude. What would be the best way to know the nearest place of the list against the current position. I could not find anything in the google APIs. I am worried I need to resort to my calculate and have to do math to calculate it.
hi is there an app so i can map out a route i want to ride my bike so i dont get lost, im terrible at remember road names. and often find myself miles from where i wanted to be , i have tried a few gps apps but they dont let you choose the route.
I am just a beginner in the Android and was experimenting with HTTP.I have published the result of my experimentation through the following link http://kausikdas.webs.com/apps/blog/show/1489440-http-in-android. I am yet to get a device but working with the Simulator.I need feedbacks on the possible network problems I should handle. e.g.: 1. Do I need to discover the access points and dial one before connecting? 2. How can I know which services (Data/Data & Voice/Voice/No/Emergency etc.) current network is supporting? 3. Anything more to take care of?
I'm trying to add a label to each of the points on a map that I've created. Setting the "title" and "snippet" values of the OverlayItem don't seem to automatically cause these labels to appear however. I would've thought this would be a pretty simple and common requirement. Am I missing something? Can someone tell me if there's a function that does this?
Has anyone checked to see if 3 or more points will show up on an Incredible? I'm trying to see if there's hardware/driver/android support for more touch points. Why more touch points? I dunno. It could be cool for something. I read that the physical screen supports 10 but my first tests printing MotionEvent.getPointerCount() only give me 2.
I made the switch to Google Navigation after using Sprint's Navigation application for a few years on my previous BlackBerry and love it! It's my primary GPS application. So, here's my query. While I was tinkering with it today, I noticed the option to choose an alternate route. We are going to be driving to LA a little later this evening and the default route Google Navigation chose was longer in both time and distance compared to one of the alternate routes (total of three routes). The default route gave said it is 332 miles and 6hr/9min. When I pulled up alternate routes, the second option was 325 miles and 5hr/49min. The third route was over 7 hours long. Do you guys know what methodology Google Navigation uses to pick the default route? Why the longer route?
I'm new to Android. and I parse a XML file from the following URL http://maps.google.com.tw/maps/api/directions/xml?origin=41.77732,-87. and I want to draw a route on Map, I found the information can help me to do this <polyline> <points>se~}FjtxuOKdEJ|JIpA</points> <levels>B??B</levels> </polyline> but how to use? help me, there are so many useless information when I search "Android polyline example" anyone can give me some short examples?
I'm trying to play a music (using MediaPlayer) during a call and want the caller to hear the music I'm playing. Unluckily it doesn't seem work at all, the caller hear nothing even I set the music volumn to MAX ( of course, the speaker and the mic on Android are far away from each other). Is there any ways to route Android's audio output to its Mic? Or something like "Stereo Mix" in Windows?
I currently have a moto droid, and am thinking about getting a android tablet when they mature a bit. My concern is i want to use this at work, but for this to be completly functional i need to put a static route into the system. We have a wireless network which is seperate from our wired by a router. It is all static IP based and so on to keep employess off the internet, but if you know what static route to put in you can access the systems on the wired network. Does anyone know if this is posible, i have tried looking at the system files via Astro and i havent found anything.
A co-worker has an iphone app that allows him to draw a line and it only shows the results for his search within a specified distance of the drawn line as opposed to in a radius from where you are as is default in google. Thus not giving you results that are behind you and don't really help. He said it is called Y! Sketch. I couldn't find that specific app in the Android market. Is this because I'm a search noob and just missed it? If that specific app is not made for Android, is there another similar app?
I have some code that uses a network connection. I create a connection by calling openConnection() on a URL object. Is there any documentation that explains how this process works? Which access point is being used? When that access point becomes invalid, will it automatically switch to another accespoint? etc. I would like to use only WiFi access points and otherwise fail even tho 3G or GPRS could be available, is that possible?
I am developing an application on the android platform. The app performs continues WiFi scan and sends information about the list of visible access points to server. However, I need to remove all the Ad Hoc points. The android.net.wifi.ScanResult api does not seem to have any information on "mode" of the network. Is there anyway I can distinguish a given point is Ad Hoc or Master?
i am working on a client server program in android. i have a Main java class running on my pc as a server socket listening to the port 8626 and i am trying to connect android client (on real device ) to that server. i tried my local ip and it gives me no route to host exception please suggset which ip i need. if i use ip 10.0.2.2 and run on emulator it succeeds but not on real device. client and server both are on same pc, and android device is attached to my pc as well.
I am looking for a mapping application that will let me browse maps offline, as well as plot points onto the map. Does anyone have any ideas which app might let me do that? According to the MapDroyd app, it won't let me plot points
I can customize a driving route in Google Maps and use it for navigation on the Moto Droid? I'm not looking for the most direct route that the Droid navigation tries to use, but twistiest for a motorcycle ride.
I'm just writing an App for displaying the route between two coords (lat, long) in google maps view. Displaying an single coord (even with a marker) works fine, but how to do this with 2 ones and the route between them? I must admit that I'm quite new to Android and the maps-API.
I am thinking about getting a tablet instead of a netbook (Eken M001 has 1.6) which i need for mostly working out my routes in the morning since I work for a delivery company. Right now I have to come home to use autoroute on my PC but this takes me an hour to get home and back again taking an hour out of my journey so a tablet would be a perfect alternative. I live in the UK so need an autorouter for me that works offline. Does any such app exist or should I get a netbook?
Basically I just need to enter a bunch of postcodes and it tell me the quickest order in which to goto them to save time in my day but going home to get them is kinda against the whole point of saving time.
