I am trying to create something similar to

in my android phone application. Basically I have a List of GeoPoints and I need to make the car/marker move on the map according to the values of the geopoints. Putting the mapView code in a loop does not help at all! The map is invalidated till it reaches the last location in the list and then shows up with the latest location only so I cant see any movement of the marker.

If anyone has created this on android - please do get back to me! Appreciate your help very much!
