 Hi all,

Im trying to create a application using MapView with GPS... but the
following error appears in LogCat:

MapActivity(8287): Couldn't get connection factory client. And it
shows a strange screen in the emulator instead of the Maps...

The problem is that sometimes it works.. But 90% of the times it doesn
t work. I used the MapView with GPS in previous releases and I never
had problem...

My Manifest has the permissions set.. does anybody please know what I
m doing wrong?

thank you

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="" ;

android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />

    <application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/

        <uses-library android:name="" />

        <activity android:name=".MenuGPS"
                <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

2. Emulator Skins for HTC Dream / T-Mobile G1

Hello Android fans and developers.

I just finished building the first HTC Dream/T-Mobile G1 skins for the
Android emulator and would like to share them with you. Right now I
have done the black version of the phone in portrait as well as in
landscape mode. They are tested to work with the latest Android SDK
version 1.0r1 (they also work with the 0.9beta).

You can get them here: (preview
screenshots available)

I hope you like them and can put them to good use.
