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 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

General :: Android Reporting Wrong Stats On Storage?

Mar 10, 2012

Home>Settings>Storage Says:

Total space on SD card is 7.45GB
Free space on SD card is 3.15GB

Application Storage available space is 575MB

the pic is corrupted. When recording video, the camcorder app just closes without any kind of error message when I press the record icon. This morning, I was editing an XLSX file in QuickOffice and when i tried to save my changes, it said that there wasn't enough space. I changed ONE NUMBER in ONE CELL in the file from 178 to 143. So it's not even like the file size was even going to increase.

HTC EVO 4G :: Wrong Location - Gps Or Weather Widget?

Jun 13, 2010

I have two EVOs at home (mine and the wifes) and both have the same problem, the weather app is set to use the gps location yet it returns the wrong location. The location isn't just off a little bit either, it reports our location as being a city over 160 miles away. I find sometimes the gps reports the location wrong in the maps as well. Is there a way to calibrate the how, and is anyone else experiencing this issue? It doesn't seem to be signal problem as I am in a strong 4g location and when off of 4g always on 3g.

HTC Droid Eris :: GPS Showing The Wrong Location

Nov 28, 2009

My friends and I have the Eris and we are having problems with the GPS. And it is probably something we are not doing right. Basicly when the phone goes to sleep it loses the GPS location and reverts back to Manhattan, KS for some reason. So when you pull each other up on latitude it always shows us in Manhattan.

HTC Droid Eris :: Showing Wrong Location

Aug 30, 2010

My phone is having a weird problem. Yesterday morning, the time on my phone was off by 7 hours. I figured it was a glitch so I restarted my phone. When I booted it up it still showed the wrong time. I went to the clock and it says my current location is in Workingham(which I've never heard of), but I'm actually in Baton Rouge. My weather widget shows Baton Rouge as my location but my clock things im in Workingham. For the time being I've got my clock set manually. It's weird because Google Maps shows my location as Baton Rouge, I even used my GPS yesterday for Navigation with no problems.

Android :: Google Latitude Finding Wrong Location

Mar 6, 2009

Ever since the RC33 update where the new Maps version came out with Latitude included....my Latitude acct has been...well...off.

I'm running my GPS when Maps is used...rather than a triangulation method w/ the towers. However...there have been QUITE a few occurances where Latitude shows me in a totally different STATE. I live in metro Atlanta, but apparently, I spend a lot of time at a country club near DFW in Texas. Once, I was going down the road...started up Maps, and it was tracing me going up an interstate in a city 120 miles away from me. At the time, I was no where NEAR an interstate...but Maps was showing my movement second by second.

This is rather irritating. Google developed the O/S, they developed Latitude...yet Latitude seems to work fine on other phones OTHER than the G1. Upon reading up on Google's Help Forums...I'm not the only one with problems when it comes to Latitude and Android.

Android :: Restricted Location In Publisher GUI Is Not Working On Some Devices

Nov 10, 2010

We have an application that is restricted to one country (Norway). But I am sitting here with multiple devices, HTC Wildfire, SE XP10 (after 2.1 upgrade) and SE XP 10 Mini (after 2.1 upgrade) that fails to find the application even though they are registered on a Norwegian network (Tele2). The SE devices found the application before they got the 2.1 upgrade, and I have lots of other devices (Nexus One, HTC Desire, HTC Tattoo, Galaxy Tab) that finds the app without any problems.

This is very important for us since we can't enable the app worldwide due to copyright issues, so is there any way to resolve this issue? Is it the operator or the Android device that fails to report the correct country here?

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.

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.

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: Market Reporting Wrong Application Size

Jul 7, 2010

I've just released an update to my app and the apk file is 3.5mb on my system. It is reported as 3.5mb in the developer console. But in the market it is showing up as 7.02mb. I'm now getting comments that that app is too big and I feel people may not purchase it if they think it will take up 7mb of space.
