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().

Travian is a German browser-based game developed by Travian Games
GmbH[1] that is largely based on a predecessor game called Tribal
Wars. In 2006, the game was ranked first in the "best browser-based
game with over 10,000 players" category of the German website Travian
Games.  http://www.***.com/ 
 The game's developers drew roughly from Classical antiquity and
particularly from the Roman Empire to create a pre{*filter*}ly
militaristic real-time strategy. Along with two English versions, and
the original German version, the game has been translated into 30
other languages[2][3], and today has just over 3 million players
worldwide.[4] It is programmed in PHP and runs by definition in the
browser. It was the first game of its type to be playable through a
mobile phone, using a java platform.[5]
