Hello!
I need to display current user location in my MapFragment.

I try to use this code found on net:

        LocationManager locationManager;
        locationManager = (LocationManager)getSystemService(LOCATION_SERVICE);
        Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
        String provider = locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, true);
        Location location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(provider);
        locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(provider, 20000, 0, this);

but my application crash. He stop running before displaying anything.

The problem is here :

        Location location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(provider);
        locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(provider, 20000, 0, this);

What I do wrong? This is my first android application.

Are you implementing the locationListener? Here is an article I wrote on that particular problem.

The next problem you will have is that google are trying to deprecate the locationListerner and force everybody to use the location API instead.

You should read OS supplied guidelines before developing. I can't stress that enough. The guidelines will help you understand the reasons mobile app developers do what they do.  Apple is very particular when they review appstore submissions.
