Use the QtLocationSubset classes to add positioning and geocoding to your app.

The positioning and geocoding classes in Cascades are based on a subset of the Qt Mobility location APIs. To use positioning and geocoding in your app, include the classes you need from the QtLocationSubset library and use the QtMobilitySubset namespace. For example:

#include <QtLocationSubset/QGeoAddress>
using namespace QtMobilitySubset;

You must also add LIBS += -lQtLocationSubset to your .pro file in your project.
