No backend server for geocoder

Postby reformy » Mon Aug 08, 2011 9:58 am

I am using the gps to get a location, and use geocoder:
Code: Select all
geocoder.getFromLocation(location.getLatitude(),location.getLongitude(), 1);

However I get no results. When I run my apk on friends' devices, it does return an address. I've looked at the Geocoder api http://developer.android.com/reference/android/location/Geocoder.html, and it says "The Geocoder class requires a backend service that is not included in the core android framework". Does this mean I don't have a "backend server"? Is this specific to my device (desire hd with Lee 3.3.1 rom, didn't work with cm7.0.3 + google apps either)? Is this server something that should be running on my device, or some web server?

Thanks
