Google Places API Android Integration

I'm trying to integrate Google Places API into my already existing maps fragment, however I'm finding Googles own guide is rather confusing, and the project samples they have provided don't seem to integrate with Android studio very well (I'm assuming it's something to do with the framework/gradle). Are there any other samples/tutorials that I can use for assistance? Here is my current file structure: Google Places API Android Integration

and menu_1_fragment is where GoogleMaps integrates and loads into the project. This is what the code looks like:

package com.examples.blahblah.blahblah; import; import android.os.Bundle; import android.util.Log; import android.view.LayoutInflater; import android.view.View; import android.view.ViewGroup; import android.widget.Toast; import; import; import; import; import; import; import; import; import; public class menu_1_fragment extends Fragment { MapView mapView; GoogleMap map; // private GoogleApiClient mGoogleApiClient; @Override public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container, Bundle savedInstanceState) { View v = inflater.inflate(R.layout.menu1_layout, container, false); /*mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient .Builder(this) .addApi(Places.GEO_DATA_API) .addApi(Places.PLACE_DETECTION_API) .addConnectionCallbacks(this) .addOnConnectionFailedListener(this) .build(); */ // Set's the Title // 3 SPACES to the right. getActivity().getActionBar().setTitle(" MapView"); // Set's the Icon getActivity().getActionBar().setDisplayShowHomeEnabled(true); getActivity().getActionBar().setLogo(R.mipmap.ic_launcher); getActivity().getActionBar().setDisplayUseLogoEnabled(true); try { MapsInitializer.initialize(getActivity()); } catch (GooglePlayServicesNotAvailableException e) { Log.e("Address Map", "Could not initialize google play", e); } switch (GooglePlayServicesUtil.isGooglePlayServicesAvailable(getActivity())) { case ConnectionResult.SUCCESS: Toast.makeText(getActivity(), "Welcome to NightCentral", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); mapView = (MapView) v.findViewById(; mapView.onCreate(savedInstanceState); // Gets to GoogleMap from the MapView and does initialization stuff if (mapView != null) { map = mapView.getMap(); map.getUiSettings().setMyLocationButtonEnabled(true); map.setMyLocationEnabled(true); CameraUpdate cameraUpdate = CameraUpdateFactory.newLatLngZoom(new LatLng(-37.813611100000000000, 144.963055599999960000), 10); map.animateCamera(cameraUpdate); } break; case ConnectionResult.SERVICE_MISSING: Toast.makeText(getActivity(), "SERVICE MISSING", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); break; case ConnectionResult.SERVICE_VERSION_UPDATE_REQUIRED: Toast.makeText(getActivity(), "UPDATE REQUIRED", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); break; default: Toast.makeText(getActivity(), GooglePlayServicesUtil.isGooglePlayServicesAvailable(getActivity()), Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show(); } return v; } /* @Override protected void onStart() { super.onStart(); mGoogleApiClient.connect(); } @Override protected void onStop() { mGoogleApiClient.disconnect(); super.onStop(); } */ @Override public void onResume() { mapView.onResume(); super.onResume(); } @Override public void onDestroy() { super.onDestroy(); mapView.onDestroy(); } @Override public void onLowMemory() { super.onLowMemory(); mapView.onLowMemory(); } }

What else do I need to include to get places working with Maps? I Eventually want to use the UI picker and include a near me function. I've commented some parts out from my previous attempts to include places. Do I perhaps need to import some other files into my project dependencies?

dependencies { compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar']) compile '' compile '' compile '' // compile '' }

Thanks again guys.
