Android :: What Units Does Location.get Altitude Return In?

May 4, 2009

I live in an area which is 9 feet above sea level, and when I call getAltitude I get back a value less than -10. Am I doing something wrong, is my device a failure, or is there some nifty scale that I don't know about?

Android :: Altitude Location Data - Isn't Particularly Reliable

Jul 11, 2010

I know that the GPS altitude data isn't particularly reliable, so I looked for alternatives. This looks like a good solution I found here: But the value returned is not what I expected: -1.79769313486231E+308 I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with this figure...

Android :: Location Distance Between Units / Emulator

Feb 24, 2010

1) I have not been able to find out in which units Location.distance Between receives the latitude and longitude. Is it degrees or micro degrees? Whats the unit for the distance returned? 2) In windows XP using Eclipse 3.3.2. Emulator does not send coordinates properly. Either it by hand or by loading a gpx file the location Listener is not invoked. This same code I have tried it in Ubuntu and works fine. Does someone know how can I solve this? In the office there is no linux installed and I can take my personal laptop.

Android :: How To Return Location Pressed To MapActivity From An Overlay OnTap Method

Aug 30, 2010

I have an activity that has a button which opens a new MapActivity to select a location by tapping on the map.

The map has an overlay that overrides the onTap method to get the location but I want to return that location to the previous activity but, I don't know how to return the geopoint to the mapactivity in order to call the setResult() and finish() methods, because I can't call them from the Overlay.onTap method.

Motorola Droid X :: Browser Won't Return To Previous Page At Correct Location?

Sep 19, 2010

I don't understand this. When you hit the back button after following a link, you go back to the previous page, but not where you left off. The browser seems to just throw you somewhere near the top of the page. Is there a settings fix for this, or is it just how it works?

Android :: How To Get Maps In Metric Units?

Jul 8, 2009

This may be in the wrong forum, but I can't figure out where else to post it.
The maps app (the one from google your phone comes with by default) only shows routes in feet and miles. Is there no way to get it in meters? I can't find any settings for this!

Android :: How Do I Define / Standardize Units In My 3D App?

Mar 20, 2010

I'm starting to design my object graph for an OpenGL ES 1.1 app on Android. What's advisable when it comes to actually drawing my triangles and controlling their size? Should I store all the vertices in units relative to each other and then multiply them by a value I pass during a draw(GL10 gl)? Would this approach have any impact when it comes time to do frustum culling?

General :: How Many Storage Units Android OS Have

Nov 2, 2012

How many storage units Android OS have? Including a possible microSD external Card.

Internal Storage, internal memory?! Whats the difference and location in file system folders?

When an app is installed from market where does it go?

In application manager, in most apps there is an option "Move to SD card"...

If I have an external micro SD Card and choose this apps option "Move to SD card" where the heck is suppose to going the app or some part of it? (Data? Apk? Cache?) It's not in external microSD Card! So what is "Move to SD Card".

Android :: Isolating Units / Writing Tests

Jul 23, 2010

My project has the run-of-the-mill HTTP calls to fetch XML files, parsing the XML files, and creating domain objects. Those objects are later used in the actions and services of the Android app, I'd like to isolate that code. I also want to write tests for it. What are some good ways of doing this? Creating an Android Library doesn't seem appropriate. The tests would have to be in a separate project. And there are no services or activities in the extracted HTTP and XML related code. So the test suite doesn't have to be an Android test suite, it could be regular JUnit tests.

Android :: Maximum Texture Units - Emulator Setup

Apr 30, 2010

this is just an issue with how the emulator is setup, but I'm not sure.

I'm (natively) calling this:

int maxt = 0;
glGetIntegerv(GL_MAX_TEXTURE_UNITS, &maxt);
__android_log_print(ANDROID_LOG_VERBOSE, "Native", "Max textures %d", maxt);

This only outputs 2... could it be possible that I'm going to be allowed only 2 textures? That seems impossible... GL_MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE reports 4096 which is more than enough. I suppose you could lay everything out on a couple of 4096x 4096 images (seems a bit crazy) but anyway... Am I just running into one of things that will be different per phone processor?

I just played with a test unit in Atlanta at the South Cobb Radio Shack store. It was a sprint employee who is making the rounds to different stores and talk to customers. Freakin' sweet. I have to run to a b'day party, but it is beyond amazing. Not too heavy, fits in your pant pockets very well. Meow!

General :: Import Contacts And Groups Locally On Non-rooted Units

Feb 4, 2014

I need to import contacts and groups to 20 brand new phones, to begin with. (Stock, non-rooted Galaxy S4+, 4.2.2.). The phones will stay un-rooted.

-Avoid if possible using Gmail sync.
-Avoid if possible using Kies.
-Preferably use csv and/or vcf with groups (one group for each department).
-Preferably not being forced to connect every phone to a computer by usb cable. Fixable by download from web site on local wireless network.

What I've tried so far:Imported the original CSV:s, sorted them into groups, exported them as CSV to get the correct columns for android phones. So far so good.

Exported above mentioned CSV:s to VCF from a Google Contacts, sent it over to test phone by Pushbullet (for the test only, web site solution imminent), imported it in Contacts. Does not retain groups, shows as "Not assigned". It doesn't seem possible to create local groups? They can only be created with accounts such as gmail. (As I see it, this is my main problem now).

Tried Google Account sync: Problem not solved due to one single Google account, and one Google account on all phones are susceptible to contact deletion by fat fingers and people that are struck by bad luck while thinking. One Google account for each phone would do the trick, but probably not an accepted solution by our IT security "manager", even when using Google Auth.

Tried Kies Sync: Problem not solved due to USB connection, and still no local groups.

Tried Importing CSV file into Windows Contacts (which ****s up the columns, not all are matchable) and exporting as VCF. Problem not solved, no groups.

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.

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.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Bluetooth Connection To Various Units - TomTom Go720 - Rider II & Acer Aspire 5920G

Jul 14, 2010

I can pair my X10 to my TomTom Go720 / TomTom Rider II and my Acer Aspire 5920G no worries, and can estabilish a connection that will last only 1 minute before being discconected and then forcing me to turn the X10 off and on again to establish another connection for 1 minute before the same thing happens, etc.

I have noticed that I can turn the Bluetooth connection off on the phone, but cannot start it again until the phone has been tunred off and on ... is this usual?

I have used the Sony Ericsson update software to confirm that my phone is fully updated and also I have the Google sync running for my email / calendar events.

All other aspects of the phone appear fine ... 3G connection working very well ... flash player issue (but for another day).
