I was just playing around with a new method of getting GPS positions.
Criteria c = new Criteria(); c.setHorizontalAccuracy(5); c.setVerticalAccuracy(5); provider = LocationProvider.getInstance(c); Location loc = provider.getLocation(10000); return loc;
The problem being that the positions returned have an accuracy well outside of 5 meters:
Is the criteria being ignored, or is it a 'guideline' that the location provider tries to follow but will return whatever it can?

The following chart outlines the modes that can be used based on the criteria setting.

However, note that depending on conditions and mode(s) available, the BlackBerry may not be able to determine location within 5 meters.
