CLLocation *current = [[CLLocation alloc] initWithLatitude:startLocation.coordinate.latitude longitude:startLocation.coordinate.longitude];
CLLocation *itemLoc = [[CLLocation alloc] initWithLatitude:[[[getName objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] objectForKey:@"lat"] doubleValue] longitude:[[[getName objectAtIndex:indexPath.row] objectForKey:@"lon"] doubleValue]];
//Here the current location gives me an error "Initializing cllocation with an expression incompatible format"
CLLocationDistance *itemDist = [itemLoc distanceFromLocation:current];
NSLog(@"Distance: %@", itemDist);
The error you're getting is actually:
Initializing 'CLLocationDistance *' (aka 'double *') with an expression of incompatible type 'CLLocationDistance' (aka 'double')
What it's saying is you're initializing
itemDist (which you've declared as a
CLLocationDistance *) to something that is returning a
CLLocationDistance (notice no asterisk).
CLLocationDistance is not an object.
It is just a primitive type (specifically
double -- see the Core Location Data Types Reference).
So instead of declaring
itemDist as a pointer to a
CLLocationDistance, just declare it as a
CLLocationDistance (no asterisk):
CLLocationDistance itemDist = [itemLoc distanceFromLocation:current];
You'll also need to update the
NSLog to expect a double instead of an object otherwise it will crash at run-time:
NSLog(@"Distance: %f", itemDist);
