I have a Google maps api v2 incorporated into my app to provide an activity with a map fragment but I cant find relevant code to add a default location marker.For example when the activity is loaded it will be centered on a street with a marker,eg Old Trafford Stadium,Manchester.I have activated my permissions and got the api key and also added the relevant map fragment,This is my map class:

<pre>package com.example.g00290342bvarley;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
public class MapGmit extends MapActivity {
	MapView map;
	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		map = (MapView)findViewById(;
	public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
		// Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
		getMenuInflater().inflate(, menu);
		return true;
	protected boolean isRouteDisplayed() {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		return false;

Do you mean a default image for the marker,[^]

or the default place the marker should be?

There's no such thing -- you have to manually add each one.
