To bad the used geodatabase doesn't know where Croatia and it's capital
(Zagreb) are (which makes it a shameful commercial product or a really
bad open source one :))!

Google knows it but eclipse map doesn't ("Correct Lattitude and
Longitude for your location could not be calculated. Please check your
location information and resubmit" - tried Zagreb, Hrvatska/Croatia).
That made me to conclude that eclipse uses some custom geodatabase to
add the markers to the map (or they messed up something else).

We are using a Google Maps to lookup all locations, The official Google
Maps application does however have some more robust finding code then what
we use.

Best advice i can offer would be to enter a location very close to yours
that you know will be found.
