    Question
    Can I use GPS features with the virtual (eclipse) android? Specifically locating the device's position using the virtual android.

    I'm asking this because I don't have an android phone at the moment; so it would be kind of hard to test the app.

    Further Details
    I've developed several Android apps. before, but I have never used any GPS features in any of these apps.

    Basically, this app. requires the geographical location of the device in order to plot markers on a Google map. My dilemma is as stated above, can I use such features with the eclipse android sdk? Or do I NEED an android phone to use GPS features?

    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Go to the DDMS perspective in Eclipse. You should see an Emulator Control view.
    Scroll down and you'll see a Location Controls section, where you can set location.
    (You can also open the Emulator Control view in any other perspective through Window -> Show View)
