Hi,

I noticed that the current ArcGIS for Android API doesn't seem to have any GPS capability (well, for 2.1 level 7).  Looking at the iOS one, there is a lot of GPS functionality built into the API (e.g. MapView).  Is this true, or am I not looking at the right place?  If the former, that means I must use Android's built in GPS functionality.

The ArcGIS for Android API support GPS through the com.esri.android.map.LocationService Class

LocationService ls = map.getLocationService();
ls.setAccuracyCircleOn(true);
ls.start();


For me the ESRI LocationService does not work very well - When running the LocationService makes my app crash after some time. I hope this is due to the API being a Beta-version...

I have similar experiences with esri LS - validating codes through Google API's GPS classes mostly..
