I would like to create a map of the places I have visited to embed in my blog.Is there any application that allows me to store my location directly on Google Maps?If not on Google Maps then maybe store latitude and longitude plus a description or title field for later editing?Google Maps app finds my location just fine but there is NO option to save it.
Just got my DX in the mail today and I've been playing with it ever since! (Coming from LG Dare)I've been messing with tasker and have an idea but am not sure how to implement it so I thought Id post and see if anyone had any ideas.I have a pioneer gps unit in my car with hands free bluetooth. My idea is to have tasker save the gps location of my phone when it disconnects from my cars bluetooth and then turn off bluetooth. Then, I can have tasker turn bluetooth back on when I enter that saved location.
Now I know I'm going to feel stupid after hearing this answer probably.Anyway is there a setting for changing the save location for the market apps because they keep saving to the phone and I would like them to save to my sd card. I am using the motorolla droid.
I'm working on displaying a set of images, then if the users wishes, to have the ability to save the image to the SD card. I need help saving them to external storage. Can someone help me out with this?
I am working on a function to download an image from a web server, redisplay it on the screen, and if the user wishes to keep the image, save it on the SD card in a certain folder. Is there an easy way to take a bitmap and just save it to the SD card in a folder of my choice?My issue is that I can download the image, display it on screen as a Bitmap. The only way I have been able to find to save an image to a particular folder is to use FileOutputStream, but that requires a byte array. I am not sure how to convert (if this is even the right way) from Bitmap to byte array, so I can use a Fileoutput stream to write the data.
I've done a lot of searching and I don't think this app exists yet and I was wondering what everyone else thought as to whether it was a good idea or not. Basically it would be a "My Locations" app where you could save the address of places you have searched or have been to before so when you wanted to get directions to there from your current GPS location you could do it without having to search for it again. Also, similar to Shazaam, when you were somewhere you could just "save as current location". It would be structured similar to your contacts so you could have a picture and have categories like restaurants, bars, etc. Let me know what you guys think.
This week I followed my brother to his new house while helping him move. When we got there I could not find a way to save my location to google maps. How would I do this without having to manually add his address. My garmins would let me just click on my arrow and save the location.
I love the google navigation but I have to say it is a little more difficult to use than VZ navigator..... How do I save a location where I am at? There is a place that is starred,how do I get rid of it? I didn't even starred it.... Is there a way you can delete all your current locations you went too? With VZ navigator I can go online and manage all my places. With this, I can't...
I've looked at a ton of other threads, I'm a new user, and I can't seem to find the answer that I am looking for. I know that we can't currently store apps and games on the SD Card, but is there a way we can save it on the 8GB Internal Phone Storage instead of the Phone Memory, which is only 748MB. (I looked these totals up on the SD card & Phone Storage in Settings). I have the HTC Droid Incredible, which by the way is the best phone I've owned so far. Please let me know if this is possible.
In my Prius's GPS, I can save the location of where the car has been, and use that for future navigation need. In Droid, I don't exactly see a way of saving the current location into something like a contact so I can come back in the future. And there's no street address (inside a vast private property), so that's not going to work either.
When I had Google Latitude on my Crackberry it updated my location on a timed interval in the background, on the Droid X it only updates when I open the Google Map app, is there anyway to have it update in the background?
I am new to this phone and so far so good.Working things out and getting it set up like I want it. I have two photograph widgets on one of my screens, one set up for newly taken pictures and one set up for newly shot video. The only problem is, I don't know how to change the default video save location. I am using the astro file manager and have seen that all videos and pictures save into a file named DCIM on my SD card. How do I change this to make it save pictures and videos into different files?I have made a different file for my videos and manually moved them into the folder but the phone is still saving new videos to the same old default place.
So I am sitting in my apt in manhattans west side..over at the water.When I fire up Maps and set my location it shows me about two blocks away from where i really am.There is no way to correct this?..Im kind of shocked that i cant set my location manually..or i can and i dont know how Also using street view, no matter where i drag the marker to it wont show my address.it will show my building but it wont give me an address.
I'm using Google maps in my app development. I want to reset the map location to previously visited location before using my app when my application exits.Is there a way to programatically find out the previously visited location (longitude and latitude coordinates) in Android?
I'm currently developing an app which uses tabs and google map. What I want to do is to get the gps positions, say 3, and store them in sql db (which I'm already doing) and then display them on the map. I already created canvas, added to overlay but those points disappear when I'm changing tabs so I thought if there is a way to somehow store those coords with google map so I can retrieve them and display them nicely whenever I'm clicking the "map tab"? Please can anyone help?
I have one problem with Google Maps, while opening them at some location. How could that be possible for user to specify city first (e.g. type in EditText field "London") then press a button and see London on the map? I've succeded in opening GMaps at some pre- specified location, but only using coordinates. Cannot find anything on topic.
I've been working on an application lately that is using GMaps to display a location that is stored in the devices database. However when no location is available (no GPS signal is available) the user can go through an edit wizard and at a certain point he can add a location himself. I already have to code to display the stored location, but is it possible to write something so the user get's to see a map and when he clicks/touches on a certain area a map pointer appears and the location is stored. Is that possible in any way? Is there any good online documentation available? I searched through this group and on Google but couldn't find anything usefull.
I'm having trouble trying to find a way to guide a user from one point on a map to another. I can add the locations I want to the overlay. I want the user to be able to pick a location and be guided through the streets to that location. Does anyone know how to do this, or is it even available in the API?
Ever since the RC33 update where the new Maps version came out with Latitude included....my Latitude acct has been...well...off.
I'm running my GPS when Maps is used...rather than a triangulation method w/ the towers. However...there have been QUITE a few occurances where Latitude shows me in a totally different STATE. I live in metro Atlanta, but apparently, I spend a lot of time at a country club near DFW in Texas. Once, I was going down the road...started up Maps, and it was tracing me going up an interstate in a city 120 miles away from me. At the time, I was no where NEAR an interstate...but Maps was showing my movement second by second.
This is rather irritating. Google developed the O/S, they developed Latitude...yet Latitude seems to work fine on other phones OTHER than the G1. Upon reading up on Google's Help Forums...I'm not the only one with problems when it comes to Latitude and Android.

Dear all I m a final year student and want to know is it possible to make an application that can find the location of mobile on your pc via google maps or GPS if it is possible then how it is possible?
I am working on an app that uses the GPS on my g1. I'm wondering if it is possible that when I am using the app I can have it update my Google Latitude location every x number of minutes. Any thoughts on how this may be accomplished?
