Qt && gps favorites

Page  
1

Hi all,
I’m developing an application for Symbian that do some conversion to the gps coordinates and show it.
It would be useful to access to the ovi maps favorites.

Is it possible… ?
Where can I find some documentation?

Hm, interested in this too. Not only for symbian, but also for maemo.

A wild guess but this topic feels a lot like smack in the middle of what ForumNokia [forum.nokia.com] does. Did you search there?

I think to have some problem with qt mobility included in the SDK (windows) because it doesn’t compile for symbian device but it compile for qt simulator…
It seems to don’t recognize qt mobility header when compiling for symbian devices.

I can’t compile for symbian also very simple apps like this:
http://doc.qt.nokia.com/qtmobility-1.0/quickstart.html

Now I’m trying to find the problem…

AFAIK, currently it’s not possible even using Symbian C++. Ovi Maps API are currently not public. But there is a possibility to access Landmarks database (through Symbian C++ using Landmarks API).

Also you can check Location API from QtMobility package ( src tree [qt.gitorious.org] )

Also a technology preview of Mobile Extensions for Qt for Symbian [forum.nokia.com] also includes Landmarks API as described here [wiki.forum.nokia.com] and here [books.google.com]

so it’s in the Nokia Qt SDK?

Feel free to check it. I might be wrong, but looks like Nokia Qt SDK doesn’t include necessary files.
