Calm down and lose the attitude please.

I'm not sure there is a reliable way to determine if the device has GPS using LocationProvider. Even devices that do not support GPS *do* support an external Bluetooth GPS puck.

In my experience, I just attempt to get a location provider using the required criteria, and report any errors to the user.

try this



Code:
        try {
            LocationProvider _locationProvider = LocationProvider.getInstance(null);
            
            if ( _locationProvider == null ) {
                UiApplication.getUiApplication().invokeLater(new Runnable() {
                    public void run() {
                        Dialog.alert("Your device does not support GPS!");
                        System.exit(0);
                    }
                });


            } else {
             // do your stuff here

            }
        } catch (LocationException le) {
        }
