GPS, Location API and Calling Web Services - Day 3 - Part 10
Download this episode
Each Windows Phone 7 includes a Global Positioning System (GPS) that allows the phone to determine the latitude and longitude of the device. In this video, we first look at a special part of the Windows Phone 7 API to access the Geo Location information. Then, once we have the coordinates, we call a Web Service—a "method hosted on a web server," which when given the coordinates will return the city, state, and country names—and we use this to display the location of the device on screen.
