location NOT working correctly in droid after the upgrade to 2.2

 Hi Folks,
I had filed a similar issue about location services not working properly in
emulator. However after I upgraded my droid phone to 2.2, I am finding that
location services are not showing the correct location. Though the
coordinates looks correct, it is showing my location as San Jose while I
stay in Los Gatos. Therefore my local search query gives me result based on
San Jose.

It used to work perfectly fine with 2.1.

thanks
Sunil.

 Need some more details. Was this about someone else's thread? What is the
test case? Have you tried a diagnostic app, such as GPS Essentials?

I have a Droid running 2.2 and see no problems with location. I did notice
there was a recent system update after the Froyo update. My phone shows 2.2
build number FRG22D.

 Hi Frank,
I have exactly the same build details as you have.
when I go to the google Map and check my location - it shows the correct
coordinates ( shows my street and my house). However I need to turn on my
wifi and gsm both. If I turn off the wifi , it gives me the cell tower
coordinates ( which I presume is ok). However on both cases the location or
the zipcode should remain the same.

However, when I use the google search or use the browser and check for the
location . It shows a different a zipcode ( city).

thanks
Sunny.

Sorry, I don't understand those two use cases (google search and browser)
how they relate to location?

 Now I'm going to guess, but if you open www.google.com from your phone's
browser, you can see your location info below the search input (and I think
that's what he is talking about).

Best regards,

 Sorry I was on vacation - took a break away from all the tech madness.. :-)

launch your browser-->checkyour location->. it shows incorrectly from what I
get in the google map.
anyway, thats not my biggest issue NOW. The GeoCode reverseAPI is crashing
with a status of 20. Therefore getting address from lat,lnt is returning
null causing an exception.. any clue on this ?. I will send a new post on
this..

1. Is it safe to share a View among several layouts?

I need to use the same buttons in several list items - each of which
is a nested layout.
Instead of creating a new button each time, to save time and space, I
am going to reuse the same button, adding it to each layout. Of
course, each OnClickListener will have to figure out which list item
was clicked.
Are there any unintended or harmful side effects to this?
thanks,
Anil

2. Why don't System.err and System.out point to the console?

It would be good for Android phones to have a rolling log file that
doubles as a console.
That way, when there are problems with applications in production, the
user can simply push the logs to a server - just as Microsoft does
now.
It is weird for developers to not have familiar tools like
e.printstacktrace() or System.out.println().
Instead we have something rather inconvenient to use:

http://code.google.com/android/reference/adb.html

"By default, the Android system sends stdout and stderr (System.out
and System.err) output to /dev/null. In processes that run the Dalvik
VM, you can have the system write a copy of the output to the log
file. In this case, the system writes the messages to the log using
the log tags stdout and stderr, both with priority I.

To route the output in this way, you stop a running emulator/device
instance and then use the shell command setprop to enable the
redirection of output. Here's how you do it:

$ adb shell stop
$ adb shell setprop log.redirect-stdio true
$ adb shell start"

thanks,
Anil
