Selling Applikation not on Android Market

 No, market is not involved at all.  The platform has a built-in viewer for
this MIME type that allows the user to directly install the app.

1. MyLocationOverlay Disappears


I created a MapView and added a MyLocationOverlay to it. If I pass a
new GPS lat/lon to the app using DDMS then the blue dot will be shown
at that location, which is fine.

However if I leave the app running then the blue dot will eventually
disappear, and the only way to get it back is to send the coordinates

Is there a way so that the dot will constantly stay on the screen?



2. More highlevel 3D development


As I understand it, the only 3D graphics related thing that comes with
Android, is the raw OpenGL ES.

I would like to work with my 3D applications for Android at a little
higher level. For instance I would like to have a GLUT layer ontop of
OpenGL ES. Does anyone know if that is possible? If someone have done

If GLUT is not possible, what is then used out there? What is the best
way (in your opinion) to effeciently devoplor 3D apps for Android.
