 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" />
