Function: The CoreLocation base class.
dim c as new CLLocationManagerMBS

The CLLocationManagerMBS class defines the interface for configuring the delivery of location- and heading-related events to your application. You use an instance of this class to establish the parameters that determine when location and heading events should be delivered. You can also a location manager object to retrieve the most recent location data.

To use a CLLocationManagerMBS object to deliver location events, create an instance, configure the desired accuracy and distance filter values, and call the startUpdatingLocation method. The location service returns an initial location as quickly as possible, returning cached information when available. After delivery of the initial event notification, the CLLocationManagerMBS object may deliver additional events if the minimum threshold distance (as specified by the distanceFilter property) is exceeded or a more accurate location value is determined.

Important: The user has the option of denying an application's access to the location service data. During its initial uses by an application, the Core Location framework prompts the user to confirm that using the location service is acceptable. If the user denies the request, the CLLocationManagerMBS object reports an appropriate error to its delegate during future requests.
