I am using the deCarta Android API to find the GPS Lat/Lng of a street address. However, whenever I try to use the geocode method of the Geocoder class it always throws the exception:

Protocol not found 

I am passing in a StructuredAddress object populated with the street address for Google:


1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy Mountainview, CA 94043

ArrayList<GeocodeResponse> results = Geocoder.geocode(address,false);

Please advise.

This should work quite easily. I am not a technical person but if you post your question to the deCarta Dev Zone, you will get an answer. Thanks, Mike Cottle – user13071 Nov 24 '12 at 15:19
