i worked last in mapkit 2 year back, hence a little rusty.

i have checked show current location in my mapview, it shows the current location pin at a usa location, i guess cupurtino, but it is not centered. but the MKCoordinateRegion center lat long and mapview center lat long are same.

i also noticed another thing, that i cannot go further left when i drag left beyond north america, means the map seems to be flat, i thought it would be round and i can drag rounded as many times as i want, please suggest.

also i am asked to make my current location centered in the map and zoom level to 5 miles, how would i do that ?

thanks in advance

This is all explained really well on some tutorials online though..
What you need is an zoom on your map..
Code:
    [self.mapView setRegion: MKCoordinateRegionMakeWithDistance(CLLocationCoordinate2DMake(self.eventAnnotation.coordinate.latitude,self.eventAnnotation.coordinate.longitude), 200, 200) animated:YES];
this is showing yourself pin his lati/longi, and zooms with it animated to the box of 200,200, whatever fits your needs :)

please see the attached screen shot, the current location is in the left side where as i want it centered and total iphone screen set to 5 miles, rest user should drag and see. i have not added any code for setregion and setcenter as yet, only i have checked show current location in nib file.

Oh my, not even custom pins :( hurts ma eyes!

And you are showing your own location via the normal Mapkit usage of your location. I have no experience on that, what I do, is look for my location via CLLocationManager, and put a pin on my map with my location. and center that..
Hopefully someone else will set you on their way.

So, what are you asking? Are you wondering why the mapView doesn't automatically get centered on the user's location (it doesn't)? Or are you asking for the code to do that centering?
