I am loading a google kml  through my ddms.

 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.

 Hello nkijak,

decimal) .But the Nullpointer exception exists.
