    You have not described how you have tried to do it. You have not shown even a snippet of the code that "works only on Windows." You have not described what it does differently on Android. You have not told what versions of components are involved. You have not described what you have done to diagnose the problem. How would you like us to help?

    I want to implement an android application with qt 5.3 that can find user current location and show the location on a map. I've finded user location with this codes:

    source = QGeoPositionInfoSource::createDefaultSource(this);
    if (source){
    qDebug() << "sourceName():" << source->sourceName();

    source->setPreferredPositioningMethods(QGeoPositionInfoSo urce::AllPositioningMethods);

    connect(source, SIGNAL(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)),
    this, SLOT(positionUpdated(QGeoPositionInfo)));

    source->setUpdateInterval(10000);
    info = source->lastKnownPosition();
    coordinate = info.coordinate();
    latitude = QString::number(coordinate.latitude());
    longitude = QString::number(coordinate.longitude());
    }

    Now i want to use QMapControl (http://www.medieninf.de/qmapcontrol/) or something like that to show location on a map widget. I know that QWebView is not supported in android(http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/43113). I'm using qt5.3 . Is it posible to use QMapControl in qt5.3 ? if yes, how?

    The class you mention is not part of Qt5. However it shouldn't be very hard to implement something similar.
    Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.

    Please ask Qt related questions on the forum and not using private messages or visitor messages.
