All of them can use in Android ?I'd like to know details of google maps Service to create the own application about google map. I thought some functions for my application, For example :

1. Indicate MyLocation
2. Search a place
3. Load a address when the user press a long click on the map.
4. Driving direction
5. Get the weather information of a place.
6. Join latitude.

My solution :
1. use MyLocationOverlay class to make the first function.

2. use GeoCoder class , and then use method getFromLocationName to get Address of a place

3. The same 2, but I can't write code for long click on the map

4. I use HttpURLConnection to call service of google map. Then, get a kml file which is returned by google maps service (this file contained collection of points from A to B). Finally, I draw Overlay on that pixel.

5. No solution

6. No solution

What do you recommend for me ?
Do you think you could offer the best solution for the above functions ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi toanchinh,

Your solutions sound great for the things you want to do. Why long click isn't working is something I am not sure of (I could check this out but im going on holliday soon and my work is taking a bit to much time at the moment ;)).

For weather you could use the weather API provided on this website: android_weather_forecast_-_google_weather_api_-_description-t337.html.

As for the google latitude it is possible but its still under development. You should try checking out this post: http://radar.oreilly.com/2009/05/google ... g-api.html which in its turns refers to http://www.google.com/latitude/apps/badge.

With kind regards,

PS if you find the latitude API please share a lot of people here will be very happy if you do.
