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?

Android :: Alert Dialog Font Error For Network Location Provider

Dec 19, 2009

We see the bigger font for Agree and disagree buttons for the Alert dialog when the network provider is selected in the location settings menu. Any pointers or suggestions which part of the framework code need to take a look. This dialog is controlled by Networklocation.apk which is not open source.

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.

Android :: Network Provider For Location Updates In Android GPS Gives Device Time?

Aug 8, 2010

While using network provider for location updates, I found that it is the same time that I set on my device. Can it not be that provided by network as it goes when it is GPS. Or if network provider cannot provide time , then atleast location.getTime() should return 0 instead of device time. Is there any way to avoid device time, as I want to distinguish it.

Android :: Force Use Of Wi-Fi As Location Provider

Nov 23, 2010

As I understand it, I have three location providers to choose from: GPS, Network and Passive.

I would like to obtain my location by detecting the Wi-Fi network I'm connected to, I believe both Cell Triangulation and Wi-Fi location determination is covered under the Network provider.

However, despite being connected to a Wi-Fi access point, my program always seems to use cell triangulation rather than Wi-Fi to determine my location (assumed based on the huge inaccuracy of the returned coordinates).

It doesn't look like there's any way to force the use of Wi-Fi only? How does Android decide when to use Wi-Fi over cell triangulation?

Android :: Fastest And Most Reliable Location Provider

Mar 31, 2010

I am working on an app that fetches localized data from the Web based on the user's long/lat. Currently I am querying the system for the best enabled provider [my criteria defines best basically as most precise--not sure if this is the best idea for my application, as at the point where I fetch data it really doesn't matter if the user is here or 3 miles from here.].. But anyhow, I'm curious as to what is most reliably the fastest Location provider? Network or GPS? My app hangs a bit "Acquiring your location" on my loading screen and I'd like to cut this wait time down as much as possible.

Android :: 1.6 Update - GPS Location Provider Stop Unexpectedly

Oct 22, 2009

Looks like I've run into some breakage from 1.5 to 1.6 after all. I am registering location listeners with LocationManager.requestLocationUpdates() With GPS as location provider, I run into a problem with navigation stopping by itself after a few seconds, just to return, stop again, in an endless cycle. I haven't seen this prior to 1.6 Donut and I have no clue what might cause this problem.

Here's the Logcat output:

10-21 21:53:09.147: DEBUG/libgps(74): PDSM_PD_EVENT_GPS_BEGIN 10-21 21:53:11.177: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): exceeded MIN_FIX_COUNT 10-21 21:53:11.177: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): stopNavigating 10-21 21:53:11.177: DEBUG/libgps(74): qct_gps_stop 10-21 21:53:11.187: DEBUG/libgps(74): PDSM_PD_EVENT_END 10-21 21:53:11.187: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): Releasing wakelock 10-21 21:53:13.097: DEBUG/dalvikvm(74): GC freed 2562 objects / 104912 bytes in 223ms 10-21 21:53:20.227: DEBUG/dalvikvm(74): GC freed 1345 objects / 51352 bytes in 236ms 10-21 21:53:21.180: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): ALARM_WAKEUP 10-21 21:53:21.187: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): startNavigating 10-21 21:53:21.187: DEBUG/libgps(74): qct_gps_set_position_mode = 1, fix_frequency = 10 10-21 21:53:21.187: DEBUG/libgps(74): qct_gps_start 10-21 21:53:21.207: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): Acquiring wakelock 10-21 21:53:22.147: DEBUG/libgps(74): PDSM_PD_EVENT_GPS_BEGIN 10-21 21:53:24.167: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): TTFF: 2978 10-21 21:53:27.287: DEBUG/dalvikvm(74): GC freed 1417 objects / 52512 bytes in 232ms 10-21 21:53:34.397: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): exceeded MIN_FIX_COUNT 10-21 21:53:34.397: DEBUG/GpsLocationProvider(74): stopNavigating (and so forth)

A web research for these logs didn't turn up anything (which is unusual in my experience), so this leads me to post the question here wondering what the root of the problem might be.

Draw Route Using Current Location From Device On Map Using GPS Provider

Sep 11, 2012

I'm working on a project to display a route in a MapView based on current location from GPS Provider. I'm able to draw the path between two points but the problem starts when the location changes to a new point causing the draw path to erase. Basically my Location Listener saves the current Geopoint and sets the new Geopoint location and after that it starts the overlay to draw a path based on those two points. I think an option could be saving the coordinates to a database and then pulling the information from there to draw the path.

private class MyLocationListener implements LocationListener {
public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
Toast.makeText(getBaseContext(), "Tracking device..",
Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
[code]....

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 :: Enable GPS / Network Location Programmatically

May 3, 2010

I'd like to write a simple widget that toggles GPS and network location on and off. I've read that it's not possible to do that normally, but presumably on a rooted phone it must be doable. Does anyone know what the code would be? (I only need the code to toggle the location providers, I know how to make the widget.) It doesn't matter that this isn't a 'good' solution, I don't plan to distribute the widget. If it matters, this would be on an HTC Hero, still running v1.5.

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

HTC Incredible :: Using Apps With Network Location / Not GPS

Oct 24, 2010

Based on what I've been reading, leaving GPS on won't drain more battery. It's just merely allowing apps to use the GPS.That said, if you have GPS on and have apps that use GPS, you will drain more battery.I want to leave my GPS on for "Where's my Droid." My question is this: how do I make it so that apps (weather widget, etc.) only use network location and not GPS? Is there a way to block all apps except those I choose from using GPS ?

HTC Incredible : How Can I Get Weather App To Use GPS Instead Of Network Location?

May 15, 2010

It keeps telling me I'm in the town across the river. Maybe according to the network location I am in that town but when I go to maps and it uses GPS it realizes the proper city. The weather app often makes this mistake. I thought when I setup my device it may have asked if I want to use GPS or just network location for something but I can't find that setting anymore. Any ideas on how to get more accurate current location for the weather widget?

Android :: Background Practices (Interact With Network And Check Location)

Aug 27, 2010

My application needs to perform some activities in background (like interacting with the network and check the location and some other stuff), having or not the main activity visible. Which is the best way to achieve this? Should I write a service for each kind of job? Or just one service that performs everything? I am aware that I will need to launch threads / asynctasks in any case because the service runs on the same thread of the UI, but maybe having several services is a more clear and readable structure.

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

Samsung Behold 2 :: Network Location Error

Nov 27, 2009

With the stock Touchwiz software you can not access the normal Android Settings menu for Location and by default the "Network Location" function is disabled.I installed Open Home (which is a must for this phone imho) and now I can access the classic settings menu.I enabled Network Location then launched Google Maps. After a second or two it centered on a road in Bellevue, WA that is not too far from T-Mo headquarters, problem is I am on the East Coast of the US. I pulled the battery and reboot the phone.Upon reboot I opened Google Maps again and it quickly found my approx location correctly but then within a second or two it switched back to this phantom location in Washington state.Has anyone else experiences this? If so is this a glitch with my phone or a known issue with the TouchWiz/Android OS? I really need this functionality in order for the phone to be useful for me. Anyone know of a fix for this?

Android :: Android - Current Location From Best Available Provider

Mar 23, 2010

I have some Android code that needs to get the best available location QUICKLY, from GPS, network or whatever is available. Accuracy is less important than speed.

Getting the best available location is surely a really standard task. Yet I can't find any code to demonstrate it. The Android location code expects you to specify criteria, register for updates, and wait - which is fine if you have detailed criteria and don't mind waiting around.

But my app needs to work a bit more like the Maps app does when it first locates you - work from any available provider, and just check the location isn't wildly out of date or null.

I've attempted to roll my own code to do this, but am having problems. (It's inside an IntentService where an upload happens, if that makes any difference. I've included all the code for info.) What's wrong with this code?

CODE:..............

Unfortunately, this finds the network provider, but only ever outputs latlng null 30 times - it never seems to get a location at all. I never even get a log statement of locationChanged.

It's funny, because from ddms I can see output like:

CODE:..............

Seeming to suggest that the network provider does have some location info after all, I'm just not getting at it.

I think working example code would be a useful resource for the Android/StackOverflow community.

Samsung I7500 :: 2.1 Firmware - Network Location - Usb Plugging In

Apr 8, 2010

At least it looks like that to me. Many have reported it can be cured with disabling Network Location, then it was the basebands that could help, then it looked like the problem is in USB charging. Well my no sleep is a unique one and I dare to say it has nothing to do with anything and it's total luck. My Galaxy goes into no sleep as soon as I receive a call. JC6+galaxo. First it was with JC6 baseband as I said in the JC6 thread. Then I flashed II5 baseband and it worked great. It was fast, WPA Ent worked. But off course, I received a call and it went into no sleep again. No network location, no USB plugging in, looks like it is triggered by unique things. I'm officially tired of this piece of junk. I'm going back to my II5 nandroid backup. And I was so happy with JC6. Damn you Samsung. If this isn't resolved in one month I'm spending money and getting a Hero. (cheap enough, and at least it has tons of 2.1 firmwares).
