How to make the Maps work on the Emulator when behind a proxy server

 I googled around to find a solution for getting Maps to work on the
Android emulator when my computer is behind a proxy server. I got the
web borwser to work by adding a new row to the settings.db's system
table. But that fix does not fix the Maps problem.

Does anyone have a solution to this yet? I am surprised this isn't
fixed yet by Google.

1. differential GPS in android


is there a possibility to use the "differential GPS" (dgps) in
android?? The accuracy of dgps is (how i read it) 2m, while the
accuracy of "normal" gps is ~15 to 25m. Or can i manually calculate
the dgps. i doesnt find a equation or something like that.
Why i ask that: i track some gps points and save them into a gpx file.
i let the gpx file draw on and i saw,
that the accuracy is really only 15-25m.
Btw, how can i interpolate the gps points in a map view. The track
looks wavy, but i want a nearly straight line.


2. Android User Experience and UI refinements

I think Android has a ton of functionalities and that's definitely
wonderful.  I am not trying to be overally critical since I know the
Android team has been working hard and this is highly appreciated.
However in all systems, there are rooms for improvement and here are a
few areas where I think Android can improve upon:

1) UI refinements - Currently it's actually pretty hard to create good-
looking UI in android.  This is one of the main reasons why UIs in
android look like childplay compared to IPhone apps.  Any of the base/
core UI components in android (to be blunt) are not that pretty.  To
customize and add in the appropriate gradient and create the kind of
sophisticated UIs that are comparable to Iphone apps is twice as
hard.  Having done development in both, this is something Android
should target.  Overall the android UI is too blocky, too funky, and
not stylish.  And in some cases, they are moving backwards.  The new
tabs in Android 2.0 look worse than Android 1.6.  The new spinner is
also not doing justice either.  A focus in this area will be helpful
in order to create better UI for android applications.

2) User Experience - Instead of constantly just adding new
functionalities, focus on user experience.  For example, always having
to click the menu key to bring up a menu requires additional clicks
that are not necessary.  Having to click a back key and guess where
the current application UI will take me back to is also not great.
Possibly provide a built-in on-screen menu in the framework?  Provide
a breadcrumb component as part of the framework as well?
