Android dashed line drawn

Now below is my code that draws path between geopoints in map. This works perfectly fine. What I’m trying to implement is instead of drawing a line,display this path with the dots(.) as in iPhone. I want it to be like this gp1………gp2 instead of drawing in a single straight line like gp1______gp2.

I have tried almost all the options for doing this but still no success on this, any one can help me solving this?

private void drawPath(List geoPoints, int color) {
List overlays = objMapView.getOverlays();
int loopcount = geoPoints.size() – 1;
for (int i = 0; i < loopcount; i++) {
GeoPoint p1 = (GeoPoint) geoPoints.get(i);
GeoPoint p2 = (GeoPoint) geoPoints.get(i + 1);
MyPathOverLay p = null;
/**** Marking the start and end of the trailpath ****/
if (i == 0) {
Bitmap bmp = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(this.getResources(),R.drawable.greenflag);
p = new MyPathOverLay(p1, p2, 0xFFFF0000, true, false, bmp);
} else if (i == loopcount – 1) {
Bitmap bmp = BitmapFactory.decodeResource(this.getResources(),R.drawable.redflag);
p = new MyPathOverLay(p1, p2, 0xFFFF0000, false, true, bmp);
} else {
p = new MyPathOverLay(p1, p2, 0xFFFF0000, false, false, null);

public class MyPathOverLay extends Overlay {

private GeoPoint gp1;
private GeoPoint gp2;
private int color;
Boolean isFirstPOI;
Boolean isLastPOI;
AudioMap audioMap;
Bitmap bmp;

public MyPathOverLay(GeoPoint gp1, GeoPoint gp2, int color,Boolean first, Boolean last,Bitmap bitMap) {
this.gp1 = gp1;
this.gp2 = gp2;
this.color = color;
this.isFirstPOI= first;
this.isLastPOI = last;
this.bmp = bitMap;

public void draw(Canvas canvas, MapView mapView, boolean shadow) {
Projection projection = mapView.getProjection();
Paint paint = new Paint();
Point point = new Point();
projection.toPixels(gp1, point);
Point point2 = new Point();
projection.toPixels(gp2, point2);
canvas.drawLine(point.x, point.y, point2.x, point2.y, paint);
//—translate the GeoPoint to screen pixels—
Point screenPts = new Point();
mapView.getProjection().toPixels(gp1, screenPts);
//—translate the GeoPoint to screen pixels—
Point screenPts1 = new Point();
mapView.getProjection().toPixels(gp2, screenPts1);
if(isFirstPOI == true){
canvas.drawBitmap(bmp,screenPts.x-20,screenPts.y-40, null);
else if(isLastPOI == true) {
canvas.drawBitmap(bmp,screenPts1.x-20,screenPts1.y-35, null);
super.draw(canvas, mapView, shadow);
