In the second example, you can't omit the typeName parameter. It's required and you'll get an error if you don't supply it. Use "All" as an alternative to leaving it out. (CO 1.59)

If you use the first example, it will return objects many more objects such as pollen, honeybees and crucially, triggers. Triggers will show in the returned array as "no shape" but you can use typeOf to get the classname, which will give "EmptyDetector". This will not return objects that don't have classnames such as plants, stones and some map objects like vehicle wrecks. nearestObjects will find objects without classnames.
