Handle tap on MyLocationOverlay current GPS position

 Hi there.

I'm having trouble handling a tap on my current location in a
MyLocationOverlay. There seem to be functions specifically for this,
but I can't seem to handle it correctly.

My class look like this:

public class MyApp extends MapActivity implements LocationListener {

and when I try to override the dispatchTap() method I get told that it
must override a superclass. I'm assuming it's something to do with the
fact that my class has no link with MyLocationOverlay. I tried adding
it to the list of implements, but MyLocationOverlay is appanrently not
an interface, or something.

Can anyone tell me how I should go about handling a click on the
current location using a MyLocationOverlay, or not using one if it has
to be done a different way?

Thanks and regards,

 Create a MyLocationOverlay subclass, and override dispatchTap().

I've been working through Hello, Android and Ed Burnette dealt with
this issue in a screen.

I had a file (in this case) main.xml in the res/layout folder. I made
a new folder in res called layout-land and made a new main.xml there.
What happens when you alter the orientation (Ctrl F11 in emulator) is
that the layout-land versions (or the regular versions) of the
appropriate .xml files are accessed. I should think that the rotation
change would precipitate an invalidate() and this would do a redraw of
the whole screen.
