Android :: Location Manager Minimum Update Time Overridden / When Location Changes?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm developing a mapping app using Eclipse 3.5.I'm setting the minimum update period with the LocationManager's requestLocationUpdates method, via a configuration activity. When I set the property I see in Logcat that the system process sets the value OK.When I actually send a new location from the DDMS emulator control and the location changes on the map view, I see that the system process then sets the minimum time to zero.Below is a capture of the system's log messages. You can see that I'm setting the period to 32 seconds, then 16, then, after I've sent a simulated location change the system sets it to zero.The map responds to location changes to location changes instantly even if they are sent only a couple of seconds apart.

Android :: Location Manager Does Not Detect Location Correctly

Sep 17, 2010

In my application I have to fetch the current location. First it correctly fetches the location. But we are moving from the current location to some other location. It shows the previous address. It is not updating the location. My code is: locManager = (LocationManager)getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE); locListener = new MyLocationListener();locManager.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager .GPS_PROVIDER ,0,0,locListener); location = locManager.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);if(location != null){latitude = location.getLatitude();longitude = location.getLongitude();} Please find the mistake and when i launch first time it is not working on second time itself it is working so check this thing also.

Android :: Change Update Time Of Location Overlay

Aug 18, 2010

I am trying to see if anyone knows if it is possible to change the update time of MyLocationOverlay (http://bit .ly /dBIVdj). I have tried subclassing MyLocationOverlay and implementing my own location manager but when that happens I do not see the overlay on the map. I would try overriding the drawMyLocation method however I don't know which canvas to provide the method (since I would be drawing onLocationChange). To summarize, I am looking to do three things in MyLocationOverlay subclass:

1. Change the location update times to whatever I want.

2. Draw the "my location" dot with the radius when the onLocationChanged() method is called.
I've thought about making my own special class with special overlay -- but I feel like there has to be a better method to get what I want out of this class.

HTC EVO 4G : Clicked Update Location But It Says My Location Is Unavailable

I am having problems with the quick search feature. I did a random search for Mcdonalds and a map pulls up that is no where around me. I clicked update location but it says my location is unavailable. I have GPS enabled and my navigation app works just fine.

Android :: Location Manager Retries

Dec 23, 2009

Has anyone got a good solution when the Location manager returns a null? My brain is baked trying to get around this. I know its just a matter of time but do I need to put in a musical interlude? I'm only asking for Coarse Location. Right now I'm just exiting with a Toast but I would rather have a way to hang around and maybe kick the thing into gear. I'm pretty sure this was one of my force close issues but the Toast is just an escape clause. It doesn't solve the problem.

Android :: Communicate With A Location Manager Started From Another Activity

Aug 20, 2010

In my app I want to obtain a gps lock and record the coords. But I do not want to lock the device into looking for the gps. The user is to be free to traverse through the app and the different activities within.

So If I call a locationListener in activity A, can I reference it in activities B C and D?

if is was still in activity A I could say something like

A.this.mlocListener.removeMyUpdates();

When I am in activity B how can I reference the LocationListener I set up in Activity A

Android :: Way To Accurately Determine Which City In US The User Is In Using Location Manager

Oct 14, 2010

I am trying to determine the city in USA the user is in using their current location from an Android App. I want to use the GPS as the location provider but how accurately can I determine the name of the city from the Locale or Latitude / Longitude data.

For instance I noticed the twitter app determines you are in Manhattan when tweeting from Manhattan, but is it possible to retrieve New York City instead of Manhattan from the location data and likewise Los Angeles instead of Beverly Hills.

This is because all I need to determine is which city the user is in as per the current location.

Android :: Testing Location Using Network As Location Provider?

Jan 27, 2010

I have an application which uses the network as the location provider (rather than GPS eg.), however I can't seem to figure out how to send the emulator test coordinates. In DDMS I would usually send coordinates in the Emulator Control tab.Is there a place to simulate coordinates derived from the cell phone network provider?

General :: Devices Reporting Wrong Location After Location Spoofing

Mar 15, 2013

Recently all my android devices think they are in Spain when I am at home in Toronto.

I think this was caused when I ran a location spoofing program on only one of my devices, one of the locations I set it to was Spain (among others).

I've tried clearing the data for the Network Location apps, changing the SSID on my router with no luck.

The only way it shows the correct location is when I go outside and run Google maps long enough to get a GPS fix. But when I go back inside I am back in Spain!

The devices this is affectingGalaxy Nexus with my google account

Nexus 7 with my google account

Galaxy S3 with my google account

Galaxy S2 without my google account

Android :: Location Provider / Coarse Location

Jun 25, 2009

The way we are retrieving locations from our Android phones is to 1st get a Coarse Location followed by a Fine Location. This is for the case where the user may be inside a building initially and unable to track satellites. After we get our coarse location we transition to a fine location to track satellites. This method has been working fine for several months. We recently upgraded to 1.5 and our mapping application, to my recollection continued to work.For the past couple of days we have not been able to get a coarse location and we are receiving a status message in the onStatusChange callback of.We have re- installed previous versions our code that used 1.1 and we are receiving the same status message of .TEMPORARILY_UNAVAILABLE. Other than the obvious description of the constant, we can find no meaningful information.

HTC Desire :: Home Location Fixed Instead Of Current Location

Nov 14, 2010

How could I fix the location which appears on the clock on the home screen and serves as weather forecast location? I am not living near a big city listed on the weather location list and when at home, the current location usually is indicated some dozen miles away from my home. This could be a cosmetic problem, but in the Alps (where I am living) weather a short distance away can be quite different from where you are.
Besides that, it would be nice to know the weather at home while beeing abroad.

HTC Droid Eris :: Wrong Location / Location Unavailable

Jul 2, 2010

i've had my phone about 3 weeks now. up until last week, the htc weather widget would update to my current location. when i was home, it would show the town i live in. i also had the google internet option to use my location and this would also work perfectly until last sunday.now, the weather location was stuck on miami no matter where i went (as far north as west palm beach) and the internet shows up 'location unavailable'. i have found out that the gps is picking up where i am in goggle maps but it seems that the cell towers are not as far as weather and internet location are concerned. i have tried all of the obvious settings.i did a factory reset and now my weather says ft lauderdale which is closer to me but still not my town. it does not update (manually either) as i move. the internet location still says location unavailable although for a fleeting minute after the factory reset, it DID locate me....then it was gone so i called verizon, they didn't have a clue. then i took it to the store and it turns out EVERY phone the tech tried in the store had the same problem, including his. he told me it was a google problem and there was nothing he could do about it. i felt if i tried explaining how that would make it a verizon problem as well, it would be a losing battle

Android :: Way To Create Service To Report Location All Time?

Mar 23, 2010

I want to create a service that runs on Android which can collect all of my location information. Either write the information to a file or send to a server using 3G/wiki network. I was thinking about using a service that runs forever as a daemon. After reading "Diamonds are forever, services are not" by Mark Murphy, I realized that it is not a good idea. However, I need to somehow acquire the moving trajectory information on the Android phone. Without a daemon service running forever, how do I do that ?

Android :: Call Forwarding Based On Location Or Time Of Day

Feb 1, 2010

I used PhoneAlarm to do my call forwarding when I was on the "other" platform. It dialed my call forwarding number based on time of day. I know Locale has the capability but there is no plugin to do it. Does ANYONE have an App or know how I can call forward based on location or time of day or to at least call any number based on this criteria? I do not, or I should say, cannot use Google Voice since I have no account and they are not taking any more users.

Android :: App To Schedule Exchange Sync Based On Time / Location?

Mar 23, 2010

I'm new around here, but I thought I'd appeal to the knowledge-base to see if anyone knew of an app that might help me.

Basically, it's pretty simple. I want to be able to control how frequently my Exchange email syncs based on what time of the day it is and/or my location. Does Locale have this functionality? Just reading the documentation, I don't think it does, but I'm not too anxious to spend $10 to find out. Could there be a plugin or something for Locale that would do it?

My basic beef with my Eris is that when I'm at work, with my email running and I get an email, even if I retrieve it and mark it as read, my phone will still beep and retrieve the email when it does its sync cycle, (which I have set to every 10 minutes) so I'll basically get the email twice, even if I've read it on my computer 10 minutes before. I'd like to be able to set it so that I can control how often it syncs when I'm at work, either based on the time or location.

Is this possible? Anybody have any suggestions?

HTC EVO 4G :: Dolphin Browser - Google Ask For Location Every Time

Aug 5, 2010

For the record, I have already restarted my phone several times, and even taken the battery out to be sure. Anyhow, I have upgraded to Froyo 2.2 and after that update, I updated my Dolphin Browser. I have Google as my homepage, and now, every single time I open Dolphin, and it goes to Google, I get a popup from Google saying it wants permission to know my location. I have made sure the green check mark is checked, that indicates it wants to remember this action. Yet every time I log on, it asks me for my location each and every time.
