Missing map!

 I have a basic working GoogleMap app, which I've copied and made some
changes to. However, hardly any map is drawn, and I can't see why.
Otherwise the app works OK - if I Geo Fix the map moves (I lose the
map I have and just get white with grid, plus a green dot as expected)

I'm sure it's an obvious error, hopefully easy for you guys to spot ;)

That looks like an Internet connectivity issue. I run into that with the
Google Maps application if I try getting maps over EDGE instead of 3G or
WiFi. The fact that you are getting some tiles, just not all, means it
should not be a programming problem (unless you have some infinite loop
somewhere that is tying up the CPU).

 Thanks Mark - a sensible observation, but the original app works fine
still !

I've also had a script running on a remote server for a few hours that
is still OK, plus the internet connection is a very good one.

Maybe there is a problem somewhere on the net which will be OK later.

 OK, may be unrelated, but am also having problems with
geoCoder.getFromLocationName which thows 'Unable to parse response
from server'. Seems to be a common problem, but no solution found!
Could the cause of this be the cause of my map problems ?
I do get

04-21 14:00:21.287: ERROR/ActivityThread(5222): Failed to find
provider info for com.google.settings

which I'm not sure is relevant or not.



 protected GeoPoint GetPointFromAddress(String strAddress)
    {
      Geocoder geoCoder = new Geocoder(this, Locale.getDefault());
      try {
        List<Address> addresses = geoCoder.getFromLocationName(
                        strAddress, 5);
        if (addresses.size() > 0) {
            GeoPoint gp = new GeoPoint(
                    (int) (addresses.get(0).getLatitude() * 1E6),
                    (int) (addresses.get(0).getLongitude() * 1E6));
            return gp;
          }
      } catch (IOException e) {
          e.printStackTrace();
        }
      return null;
    }

 Hmmm it appears my old apps don't work today. Initial map is OK, but
any movement results in white space, so no updates.

How can the initial map be OK if the google server isn't accessible?
Does it get cached somewhere (I have restarted the emulator and
Galilleo)

Google Maps is a proprietary component, so we do not know much of the
details of how it works.

1. A problem on displaying "Hello Android" -application

I have tried to build my first Android application. I installed
Eclipse, Java, and Android, wrote the code and got no error messages.
However, the Rogers' et al. book "Android Application Development"
says that there should appear a screen where "Hello, Android" is
printed. I don't know how to open the screen as I get only an emulator
where the hello message is not printed. I tried to click the button on
the bottom of the screen to see all applications. There are 16
applications from "Alarm Clock" to "Spare Parts" but no application
"Test". Can anyone explain how can I see the "Hello, Android"-window?
