    I'd like to be able to enter the geo coordinates and see the location on the map.

    Seems neither is possible...

    Neither is possible? Huh?

    rsgiridaran: you want to take a look at the LocationManager class in android.location

    renedokbua: and you want to take a look at the MapView class. There are extensive examples of how to use it on the internet.

    dmitriyk: I'm interested in what you were talking about concerning MapView. Anymore information you can mention about that? Is that an app I can download?

    @bLampert: You can add Google Maps External Library to make it more simple. And it will give you an easy Graphical User Interface. For further details checkout this link.Location and Maps | Android Developers
