Android :: Why Can Maps Find Location On Demand?

Jun 2, 2009

In my activities onCreate method I start listening for location updates as follows: locationManager. requestLocationUpdates(bestProvider, 5000, 0, myLocationListener); Previously I used 60,000 ms instead of 5,000 ms. The problem is that I have trouble getting the first update.public void onLocationChanged(Location location){ if (location != null){ lastlocation = location;

HTC Hero :: GPS Stopped Working With Google Maps - Cannot Find Location

Feb 14, 2010

I have a Telus HTC Hero and for a few weeks now my GPS simply stopped working with google-maps. It keeps saying "can't find location". If I use Gps Status app, it shows a compass and shows how fast I'm moving in what ever direction, but for some reason google maps can't seem to lock on. I've tried hard and soft resets, turning triangulation on off, GPS on off.

General :: Maps Can't Find Location Since Upgrade To Latest Google Play Services

Apr 12, 2014

After the update to Google Play Services v4.3 (latest version to date), Maps can't find location anymore without GPS, it remains stuck on "Waiting for location" despite having wifi or data on.When I revert back to Google Play Services v4.2, the issue disappears and Maps behaves again normally.

The problem is that I need the latest version of Google Play Services for streaming videos with my phone to Chromecast (and in any case, Google Play Services will auto update to the latest version).Any same issue with Google Play Services v4.3 ?

Android :: Display Images On Demand Inside A Listview / Find Out List Item Is On Screen?

Oct 31, 2010

I am building a android aplication which will be consuming a json file from the internet. This json file contains a list of news from a particular website. Each json object contains information such like title, summary, descripition and web links for the news thumbnail and the original image.

I will be displaying in a listview three information: the news thumbnail, the title and the summary. Here resides my problem. I dont want to load all thumbnails from the internet if they wont be displayed. What I am trying to say is that why download a thumbnail from the 30th news if the user wont scroll down the image. So, i will, initially only download the thumnails from those news that are being displayed in the screen and when the user scrolls down to see more news, as soon as the list item appers to the screen i want to download the image and then display.

Is there a way to achieve this? Is it possible to find out if the list item is on the screen? I have been searching all over the internet for a solution for this but i am running out of ideas.

Android :: How Can I Find My GPS Location With GPS Sensor?

Aug 20, 2009

I am currently working with a HTC G1 and I am trying to retrieve my GPS position. But I can not understand very well the documentation. I wrote those lines, but they didn't work.It already write "provider == null" so I guess that "mgr.getBestProvider(new Criteria(), true);" returns null.

Android :: Google Maps Let User Choose Location

Aug 28, 2010

I've been working on an application lately that is using GMaps to display a location that is stored in the devices database. However when no location is available (no GPS signal is available) the user can go through an edit wizard and at a certain point he can add a location himself. I already have to code to display the stored location, but is it possible to write something so the user get's to see a map and when he clicks/touches on a certain area a map pointer appears and the location is stored. Is that possible in any way? Is there any good online documentation available? I searched through this group and on Google but couldn't find anything usefull.

Android :: Find GPS Location Once / Show Loading Dialog

Aug 15, 2010

I am writing an app that requires the user's current location (lastknownlocation won't be very helpful) and displays a list of all the closest "items" to them taken from the database.I have got the finding of the closest items working well but only using a hardcoded latitude and longitude location for the time being but now it is time to implement finding the actual location.Can anyone provide an example of how to have the app find the current fine location in the background and have the app wait. I only need the location once not updates as the person moves. I have implemented a location listener however I understand getting a GPS fix can be slow. I have seen other examples using last known location or implementing the location listener which continues to run and update however as my Activity needs the location coordinates before it can display anything the app just crashes. I need to show a Progress Dialog while its searching.

How can I have the locationlistener run once in the background and then remove location updates once it finds the location. I need the rest of the application to wait until it has a GPS location or timeout after say 20-30seconds. I would like a ProgressDialog up so the user knows that something is going on, but it just has to be the spinning loading animation not a percentage or anything. If possible I would like the user to be able to cancel the dialog if they are sick of waiting which then they can search by typing suburb etc instead.I have been trying to do it with threads but it is getting way more complicated than I feel it should be and still not working anyway. On iPhone this is much more simple?Can anyone provide a nice way of doing this, I have been ripping my hair out for a week on this and it is really putting me behind schedule for the rest of the app completion date.

HTC Magic :: Google Maps My Location

Nov 18, 2009

I have a Rogers Magic on the AT&T network here in the US. Its a 1.5 system.

On my old phone, the BJ-II running WM6, in google maps I could get my not-so-accurate-location from the cell tower. It wasnt aGPS, it was just a rough guesstimate of where I was at.

With this magic, is this functionality just not possible? It seems the only way to get a rough estimate of location is to use wifi of gps.

The igoogle web page is able to get my location though, it knows what city Im in, and its not using wifi/gps to do this, so I dont see why google maps isnt doing the same thing.

Also, I'd like to upgrade to 1.6 but I dont know in my phone is CRC1 or CRC24 or 32a or 32b.

my baseband ver is 62.52S.20.18U_3.22.20.17
my kernel ver is 2.6.27-dd63d1eb u70000@Android-X01
my build num is 2.16.631.6 146733 CL#33776 release-keys

How can I find out my CRC number and the 32 #?

Also, how do i manuall close apps? the "stop app" in "manage applications" isnt working for any of my apps

HTC EVO 4G :: Google Maps Location Error?

Jun 26, 2010

Is anyone having issues with Google Maps being able to pinpoint your exact location while using the Evo?I used to use Google Maps all the time on my MyTouch, and it would always find my exact location with no problem. But I used it for the first time today on my Evo, and it was always a couple of streets off (not "general" location with the transparent blue circle, but "exact" location w/no circle). This is very inconvenient when using Navigation because it keeps wanting to redirect from a place that I'm not at.I made sure my GPS was on before I started using Maps. I haven't tried using Sprint Nav or any other Nav apps, so I'm not sure if it's a problem with Google Maps, or the Evo GPS.

On google maps on the Droid X, google maps doesn't find me at all and simply gives this error"Please enable a my location source in system settings".I don't want to enable full GPS for simple things like finding a local restaurant as approximate location would be fine with this
