Emulation Notes

The first time you run the MyMap program on the emulator you may get an Android AVD Error. Follow the directions in Section 1.3, Creating an AVD, on page 23 to create a new AVD for the "Google APIs (Google Inc.) - API Level 8" build target called "em22google."

On the emulator, you'll initially see a zoomed-out map of the world and no dot for your current location. As before, use the Emulator Control view in Eclipse (or in the stand-alone DDMS program) to feed fake GPS data to the sample application.

When running in the emulator, the compass inset will not be shown because the compass sensor is not emulated.
