 does getLastKnownLocation have a location to give yet? try running
maps first then run your app

I updated your code on that site to be more "correct". You should
stick with the static variable instead of hardcoding the string "gps".

You get a null pointer because you have to provide a location first,
meaning run the KML, then you can call getLastKnownLocation. When the
emulator starts, without being given a coordinate, it has no last
location. So try running the KML then running your app.

If you are trying to get continuous updates of location you should
implement LocationListener instead.

decimal) .But the Nullpointer exception exists.

1. 3d flip between two views

Is there an easy way to perform a 3d flip animation (on the x-axis)
between two views?
So i have a view ( actually a viewgroup) and an ImageView... By
tapping on the Image the image should flip 180* and the other view
should be desplayed.

I looked through this code
which shows how a 3d rotate animation on a view can be performed...
How should I adapt this code so that it flips between 2 views?

or is there an easier way to do this?



2. Problem with view alignment and image size

I have to show a image in vertically center on the screen. The image is
originally of big size, but I reduce it and display it.
Problem is I have to maintain the ratio of the image like example.
Original image is of 200 X 400, then I might reduce it 100 X 200.
Again if Image is of 500 X 200 then I might reduce it 250 X 100.

Problem is that My Image doesn't have fixed width or height. How can i
keep it such a way that Whenever image loads it should be vertically
I tried setting android:layout_centerVertical in xml, but it doesn't
work as in xml I have to pass layout height and width. But as i said my
height / width
of image is not fixed.

Please help me with this case.
