Default about chapter 7 requestLocationUpdates method

I'm studying the book: Professional Android Application Development
In the Chapter 7, Tracking movement:
"The requestLocationUpdates method accepts either a specific Location Provider name or a setof Criteria to determine the provider to use."

Does it mean the requestLocationUpdates method may have a parameter about Criteria?

But I search the Android API,
The requestLocationUpdates() doesn't have the parameter about Criteria.

Do I misunderstandand it's meaning?
I am very confused.. thanks a ton for any help

That seems like a typo to me. I do not see any function definitions which include a Criteria parameter for requestLocationUpdates().

Of course, you realize that you can select the Location Provider using Criteria with:

locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, true);

So other than questioning what the author meant by this statement, there's no reason you cannot get the location updates with your desired LP.
