Hi ,

Im a new in the field of LBS in Brew. I went through a lot of docs of LBS.
Some doughts relating to LBS are,

1)I heard about some extensions for LBS wich are developped by Third parties like LocationNet ,WaveMarket, AutoDesk etc .From the verizone site i understands that after accepting the idea of the LBS application by operators "you will be provide with the BREW extensions.Verizone partner Autodesk will provide technical support to application developers who have been accepted in to the developer's program". So i understand that for using these extensions on device firtsly we need to contact operators.right?

2) After getting the Latitude and Longitude, for displaying a particular place name we must send this to a free service site which converts this value in to place name.right? When we get a response from that site we must parse the response for retrieving the place name.right?Is above is the actual procedere?

3) For simulating LBs apps we can use .bgp file for simulator, which we can generate by connecting a GPS device to PC via NMEA.Then myquestion is how this work on actual device without .BGP file.

4) Some LBS extensions provide rendering, scrolling and zooming in and out of maps.If we developp apps without these extensions we must handle all these? right?

5) Without using the LBS extensions we can developp LBS apps by using the Iposdet interface.Then what is the advantages of LBS extensions devlopped by third parties.

6) I run one sample application that i got from Qualcomm site(sampleposdet.zip).
Application run succesfully on simulator. What are the other things that i need to consider when loading this app on the phone.

Thanks

One more doubt,
After getting Latitude and Longitude for getting a location map, hotels in that place , Hospitals, ATM etc etc we must maintain a database .Right? Or if there is any free service or payable service exists for providing all the details(like hotel name, Place name,Hospitals etc...) if we send the Latitude and Longitude as a HTTp request.
Anyone plz reply.
