Which Location API should be used ?

Which is the more reliable API to develop with for a 5.0 app?

 

net.rim.device.api.gps.BlackBerryLocation and BlackBerryLocationProvider

 

or the

 

java.me.location.Location and LocationProvider

 

Obviously for anything prior to 5.0 the java.me.location apis apply.

Re: Which Location API should be used ?

Hi,

 

in my app I start using the J2ME Location and LocationProvider, and finally I used the BlackberryLocation & BlackberryLocationProvider only for error management and some extra info.

 

The reliability that I saw was the same or very similar, I see difference only for coding.
