GoTo Page App

The issue we are having is that we have a Hard Copy book has 679 pages and the Kindle e-book has no pages just locations . i.e When we are at pg 450, in the hard copy, our kindle users have a difficult time go To that page . I created a table that corresponds to Pg to location i.e pg 450 =loc 4479 This is ok but still a little inconvenient. I created an app that Does open the book and Kindle reader but Im still struggling to Find the commands that after the book opens to go to a particular location. Once I can find the command that will open the reader to a location I can write a script i.e if pg 450 then go Loc 4479 or utilize a case statement This is that java so far that opens the book Intent intent = new Intent(); intent.setAction(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW); File file = new File("/sdcard/Books/Testbook.prc"); intent.setDataAndType(Uri.fromFile(file), "application/x-mobipocket-ebook"); startActivity(intent); I also played around with apnx but output is inaccurate( pages don't match) for this book. I'm stuck for know , Any Ideas on how to open the kindle reader to a specific location???? THX in Advance
