 Does any one know what the degree format of the GPS fixes one get from
the LocationManager is? It looks like DD, but I can't find any
documentation specifying this.

DMS Degrees:Minutes:Seconds (4930'00"N, 12330'00"W)
DM Degrees:Decimal Minutes (4930.0', -12330.0'),
(49d30.0m,-123d30.0')
DD Decimal Degrees (49.5000,-123.5000), generally with 4-6 decimal
numbers.

Thanks

I can't back this up, but I'm fairly certain it's decimal degrees. Seems
like the only format that's easily represented by a single double value.

fractional degrees.

1. :Button

Hi All

            when we use a default Button and click on it... it will
change its color( in to Orange... may be to show  onClick event)

       but  this is not the case when i  use
          button.setBackgroundDrawable(R.drawable.My_button);
          than button doesn't show any change on it when  i click
it...

     so is there any solution for this... so that i can use
button.setBackgroundDrawable(d)     and also show some change when a
button is clicked....

Thanks in advance for any replays...!!!!!
