Check Location In Background Service

Mar 1, 2012

I wanna background service which is looking every minute for the location.

So I created a service and created a broadcast receiver connected to the alarm service.

That works generally fine.

Now I wanna check the Location in that Service, I have a Service which is looking first for "gps" and if not available then for "network" location. That works fine!

Now my confusing case: If I am at home and connected to the WLAN the Location is found every minute and give me an notification in android bar all is fine!

But if I am on street and go around it doesnt work. The Service is just running when I touch the screen and make it active, then the service starts and gives me the location.

Why the service just works at street when I have the screen active? And at home in my WLAN it works always even the screen is not active.

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.

Android :: How Can Check If Returned Location Is Reliable

Jan 4, 2010

I know how to get the calculated GPS position via getLastKnownLocation (). As tests show, this function really always returns the last known location, so it doesn't matter if there is a gps fix available.

How can i check if the returned location is reliable? I tried it with getAccurracy(), but this function even returns a accurracy although no gps fix is availavle (anymore). Is there a possibility to get gps dop values? Used SDK is 1.6.

Android :: Check For GPS Support In-App / To Add Feature / Location Services Enabled?

May 24, 2010

How can I check for GPS support in-App to add a feature for those with Location services enabled?My concern is, I know I'd have to specify the tag in the manifest to declare that the app uses location services, but I still want the app to function for those without. I just want to check and, if the service is available, use it; otherwise just ignore that one feature.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Mini/pro :: Want To Check What Apps Are Running In Background?

Nov 2, 2010

According to my "What's using the Battery" function, my radio has been on for 4 days, but if I select the Radio App itself, it is switched off on the screen. I've tried the "Force Off" function under Apps Settings, but still the Battery-use screen shows the radio as running. Is there a way to quickly check what apps are running in the background, and - preferably - easily switch them off?

Android :: Check If Intent Service Is Already Running?

Apr 6, 2010

Sorry for the newbie question, but does anyone know how I can check whether an IntentService is already running? I'm starting an IntentService from onCreate within a normal Activity, and that means that if the user minimises and maximises the application, it gets called twice. I'm wondering if I need to use something like the solution here http://bit.ly/du3VW5 or whether there's a simpler way.

Android :: Check Activity Stack From Service?

Aug 19, 2010

I have an app that starts a service, then starts another activity previously selected by the user. Everything works on my app except I'm trying to get the service to kill itself, after it leaves the other activity without it having to come back to my activity. I've looked everywhere to see if anyone knows how to peek() search() the Activity Stack from a Service. Another way of wording is to check the foreground process from a service.

Android :: How To Check If User Defined Service Is Already Running

Sep 6, 2010

I have a service that is running within the context of my application. It gets invoked at the start of the activity and then gets update when new data is inserted or deleted from the database. The problem is that everytime I start the activity , it restarts the service. As you may have guessed - not a very intuitive design. Therefore I was wondering if there is a way to determine if the service is already running before starting it. I know I can bind to the service but I do not want that since the main activity needs to exits after the database operation is completed. I know for system services, you can get the service details from the application context. How do you do it for user defined service?

HTC Desire :: Service Need SMTP Address / Cannot Check Email Account

Oct 19, 2010

I've looked through the other SMTP threads on here also, but didn't see anything that seemed to fit. I have a Desire and I use it over a WiFi link in my home, fine for surfing and reading mail, but when I try to set up an outgoing mail account on my 'usual' mail account I run into a problem. Because I travel a lot I use a service called authsmtp to provide me with an smtp address wherever I am, works fine, annual fee is low (not a recommendation, works for me).

However, in order to work it needs an SMTP address of the form mail.authsmtp.com and a password. I can enter the mail.authsmtp.com ok but it always says it cannot check the account. Is this 'cos it cannot check the smtp or is it something else? All the other data seems to be ok.

Android :: Cannot Get My Location To Work - Service Not Available

Sep 5, 2010

My app which was working on 2.1 and earlier version fails to run properly in 2.2. It relies on the location but I do not get any error message. However under DDMS /logCat, I see a message saying: Error message while getting the location address: Reason: this service is not available. This is coming more as an information message rather than an exception or error. The process that is printing it out is System.out. Note that I did everything possible ( I can think of) to upgrade the app to run in android 2.2. The API version was changed to 8.

The manifest file contains all the following:-
<uses-library android:name=*"com.google.android.maps"*/>
</application> <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion=*"8"* />
<uses-permission android:name=*"android.permission.INTERNET"*/>
<uses-permission android:name=*"android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"* />
<uses-permission android:name=*"android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION"* />

Android :: Way To Get Quick Location Fix In Alarm Service?

Mar 14, 2010

I was wondering about the following scenario: I have an application that periodically needs to do some stuff, and at first I found that starting it as an alarm service was a neat way conserving resources AND being sure that the service would execute. However, my service also needs to know the location of the device, and I found that using getLastKnownLocation does not suffice as the location tends to be drastically outdated. I then tried adding a location listener, and requested location updates as frequently as possible, but then it could still take minutes before any location event was fired. So, now I have it running as a standard background service but I really don't like that approach. Is it possible to force a location fix within limited given that the circumstances enable acquiring a fix at all?
