Set current location (or point in map) to contact/appointment

+1 vote

I was wondering if there's any way to easily set your current location (or point in map) to a contact or an appointment. It's probably more intuitive to populate your address book browsing the map than typing down all those streets and numbers.

Also, sometimes you don't really know the address, but you know where it is. Using the map would also help on that, or using your current location. Is there anything on Android that allows us to do that? Or this sounds more like a feature request?

What is the current version of Bluedroid and if there is one where does it reside? As far as I can tell it is called 'Bluedroid for Android JB 4.2.2' but I was wondering was there an official version number for the Bluedroid stack? BlueZ was clearly labelled with a version number i.e. BlueZ 4.9.3

Ideally, I need to connect a Wi-Fi only tablet (using a Nexus 10 with Android 4.2 for testing) to an ad-hoc access point, but since that is not possible without an unacceptable rooting & modification of the device to provide the ad-hoc mode that Google refuses to implement, I'm attempting to reverse the connection by establishing a Wi-Fi access point on the Android device and getting the other device to connect ti it instead.

The general method uses reflection to get access to the "setSifiApConfiguration" and "setWifiApEnabled" methods as described in many places including this
however, whilst this successfully sets up an access point I can connect to with another Wi-Fi device (Eg PC), I have not been able to associate a static IP address with the access point or alternatively get DHCP working, with the result whilst the access point is "connected", I have no IP connectivity.

The reflection method is documented by many people, but generally with respect to modifying the access point config on a device usually associated with having a "hot spot" like a phone. The Nexus 10 wifi only tablet doesn't have a "hot spot" feature, presumably since without GSM connectivity, there is usually no point.

If I run my test program, ie the one that establishes an access point but fails as described, on an Android phone instead off the Wi-Fi only tablet, then it indeed does turn on the access point, albeit with the configuration for the "hot spot" rather than the SSID I am trying to program.

Maybe this is just not possible, although I an reluctant to believe that without expert advice. If anybody has got an access point going on a Wi-Fi only ICS or later device, I love to hear about it.
