Problem simulating a location

Hi Graham,

You should really try it on the phone before knocking yourself out
about why it doesn’t work on the simulator.  I have found that
some things involving sensors simply don’t work on the simulator.

Try that, if it doesn’t work on the phone let us know.

Good luck!

I have made sure that both these things have  been done, but In my tests on the simulator the array appears to be empty.
