AndroidLocation: with a CheckBox to toggle MapView.setSatellite()

Modify previous exercise AndroidLocation with Zoom Level Control, using SeekBar, to have a CheckBox used to toggle "satellite" mode.

Hi,

I really appreciate your example. However, I can no longer pan the map as I could with the example Hello, Map View. I am using Overlays, but even when I remove them, I still can't pan. Any idea why this would happen? I've searched for a couple hours now.

Thanks,
Ethan

Jeez, I feel stupid. The example xml has "clickable" set to false.

I think the overlays and location manager stuff had me very lost searching in the wrong direction.

After 2 hours, I'm glad I figured it out before midnight.

Thanks again for a helpful example.

Ethan
