Find Symbol on Map

Discussion created by navjohn on May 25, 2011
I am currently developing a display which shows map data in three listviews grouped around the map. The data to be displayed is determined by a GPS locaton. What I am doing is a horrible duplication of what the GPS tool already does.

I was wondering if I could, instead of getting the GPS coordinates and transforming them to the map spatial reference, just track the GPS symbol on the map. This would work in test mode and live GPS as well.
The symbol would have to be a unique one but that shouldn't be a problem.

Is there a way of locating the position of a symbol knowing the layer it is in?
