Re: BlackBerryLocation.getAverageSatelliteSignalQuality values

range?

 

You mean how accurate the location is?  There are accuracy figures given with a QualifiedCoordinate, so you can just use these.  Make sure you understand what they mean.

Re: BlackBerryLocation.getAverageSatelliteSignalQuality values

Thanks Peter,

I mean to show the user 4 mesages
1) Good if signal strength is good
2) Medium If signa strength is medium
3) Bad If signal strength is bad
4) Seaching if the signal strength is 0.

If I can User Horizontak accuracy for checking how can I distinguish between good , bad & medium ?

Re: BlackBerryLocation.getAverageSatelliteSignalQuality values

Sorry I have no idea how to do the conversion you are trying to do.  But I can tell you that anything less than 5 satellites is, in my experience, a dodgy location. 

 

I would argue that an accuracy indicator is more useful to the average user than signal strength inidcator anyway.
