General :: BT GPS Without Mocking Locations?

Feb 7, 2013

I own one of the first GNex devices with crappy GPS. I have a GPS in my car, so that wasn't a big problem. When I started to play Ingress, I used a external BT GPS Receiver (Holux 1000c). It worked very well, also inside of buildings.

Since 1.18 update of Ingress, the game doesn't start if you enable "mock locations" in the dev-options, to prevent cheating. I'm not a cheater and if I would be one, there are much easyer way's to cheat then modifying a external BT GPS.

So, is it possible (with root of course) to use a external GPS without enable "mock locations"?

General :: Set Locations In Google Now?

Jul 26, 2012

How do you set "home" and "work" locations in Google Now? I found an article online but it didn't have the same screens as I do. When I got my GNex, I set it up at work and somehow it thinks that is my "home." When I'm home, I get a Card that tells me the traffic and how many minutes it will take to get Home. I don't remember setting it up that way, I just took all the defaults.

I'm running JB. When I scroll up to get Google Now, I scroll to the bottom and press the 3 dots and select Settings. I press on Privacy and accounts, then on Manage Location History. Maps comes up briefly, but then the Settings menu overlays it. From the menu I select Location Settings. Enable location history is enabled. When I press Manage your places, I get a blank screen with a tiny message that says "No check-in places to manage."

General :: No Mock Locations With Google Maps?

Sep 11, 2012

Is there some way to force Google Maps to actually use Mock Locations?. I have mock locations turned on, on my phone and I use a seperate GPS receiver. It works in several maps, but the second I activate navigation for Google Maps I get an annoying popup telling me to activate GPS. I just want that popup to go away but cant.

General :: Setting Reminder To Google Saved Locations?

Jun 28, 2013

I love setting location based reminders in Google Now. I can set a reminder for when I get home or the next time I'm at the grocery store. But one thing I can't figure out is how to set a reminder for the next time I'm at a saved location in Google Now. For instance, Google Now knows I go to my parents so it saved the address in Google Now and I renamed it to "My Parents". But I can't set a reminder by saying "next time at I'm at My Parents, remind me...". Is this just a limitation or is there a way to do this?

General :: Google Maps Virus Mock Locations?

Nov 2, 2012

I recentrly tested a few apps from the market changing the location using fake gps points. All of them work perfect but the locations sent via apps ( facebook for example) they show Bing maps not Google ones. I prefer gmaps because for my country they show every single street and building. Bing hasn't done that yet. What app works with google sources?

HTC Legend :: Wrong GMT For Certain Locations

May 6, 2010

I obtained my HTC Legend a few days ago and it seems to have some messed up dates/times. I was wondering where this problem is being caused. My situation: Settings -> Date & Time. This is where I first noticed something odd. It appears to be using the wrong GMT for a certain location. Best example I can give u is: Greenwich Mean Time (London) GMT+1:00. As far as I know London has GMT 0? This keeps adding up which puts my timezone (GMT+1:00 Brussels) to GMT+2:00. But- the time/date/day on my phone in general shows correct (Clock and such). Contact list -> Birth date. Here I noticed the next odd thing. It shows the correct date (for ex: 9th May 2010) but it will show the wrong day (in this case it shows Saturday, instead of Sunday). This is only in my contact list. When I check the Calendar application it shows the correct day for that date.

Android :: Debugging Geo Locations Services

Jan 20, 2009

I wrote some reverse geocoding, geolocation and proximity alert routines for my little Android app. I took my Android out with me when running errands to test my routines; they're kinda hard to test from my couch. Half of them didn't work. What's the best way to debug something like this? Sprinkle a bunch of printf statements (or whatever you call them in Java) throughout the app? Log everything to the sdcard? Write a toggleable view (is that even possible?) that acts as a console? Faber Fedor Cloud Computing New Jersey

Android :: Distance Between Two Locations Isn't Right / Get It Correct?

Jul 15, 2010

I have used the algorithm on to find the distance between two points.

My two points are

long1 = 51.507467;
lat1 = -0.08776;

long2 = 51.508736;
lat2 = -0.08612;

According to Movable Type Script the answer is 0.1812km

My application gives the result (d) as 0.230km code...

Best Way To Get Current Locations From Background Service

Apr 8, 2014

I have a Service that I am running in the background every minute. It's an IntentService and I start it like this:

Intent i = new Intent(context, GPSTracker.class);
PendingIntent pi = PendingIntent.getService(context, 0, i, 0);
AlarmManager alarmManager = (AlarmManager) context.getSystemService(Context.ALARM_SERVICE);

That works, my Service is being run every minute (give or take a couple seconds for some reason) whether the app is up, closed, the phone is sleeping, whatever. how I should be getting the current location from this Service. I'm attempting to use LocationListener and a mix of getLastKnownLocation and hoping onLocationChanged will be called.

I think my problem is, onLocationChanged is barely getting called. Everytime the service runs and I do getLastKnownLocation I send a message to my database to check, I send a different message everytime onLocationChanged is called. I went to the store and back and getLastKnownLocation was called a few times, but onLocationChanged was only called once and it was incorrect. getLastKnownLocation always seems to be incorrect to.

protected void onHandleIntent(Intent intent) {
Log.i(TAG, "In onHandleIntent!");
Location currentLocation = getLocation(this);
if(currentLocation == null) {
saveLocation(-8.0, -8.0, "nothing", "nothing", "nothing");

Virtual Device File Locations?

HTC Tattoo :: Contacts And Calendar Sync - Appear In Different Locations

Feb 25, 2010

I know that there are some other posts about the contacts and calendar sync, but, i think my problem is a bit different. I have a HTC Tattoo with Android 1.6 and as everyone with a new phone, one of the first things to do is get all the contacts and calendar entries. I google a solution and came across one that syncs my older Nokia phone with Google - Gmail Account. So far so good.

The problem is with the sync with my new HTC... The contacts and calender are sync but, they appear in different locations in the HTC. I have 2 different contacts list: Persons and Telephone numbers, when i sync the contacts, they go to Telephone Numbers, but, not to persons... so, when i need to call someone, i cant's search that someone in the list that appears when i use the phone menu in home... The other problem is with calendar... when i do a sync, there's no error and it's all ok, but, the calendar it's not changed. If this is a basic thing, i'm sorry, but i'm tooooo nooooob with Android.

HTC Droid Eris :: GPS Showing Incorrect Locations?

Jan 3, 2010

I know I mentioned this in another thread, but I got to thinking about it. My return date is coming up (extended holiday return period) and I wanted to see if anyone else was having this problem or if it was in fact my phone and I should swap it out. My phone is placing my location in places I haven't traveled to or haven't been to in a long time. It is usually placing me ~200-300 miles away from my current location. I'm in Dallas, TX. Occasionally I'll unlock my phone and the HTC weather widget will say I'm in Dustin, Houston, San Antonio, and even once in Florida. Now, I can go into Google maps and let it find my location and it is very accurate. If I give it time the weather app will correct itself, but then later when I unlock my phone it will have done it again. I've tried using the weather channel app and widget and a few others. They are all having the same problem as they pull the same GPS data. Is this a problem with my GPS chip? I've done a bunch of soft resets, pulled the battery while the phone was off and let it sit for a few, pulled the battery while the phone was on and let it sit. Nothing seems to be helping. I just turned my phone off and back on and sure enough it reports I'm in san Antonio.

Motorola Droid :: Adjusting Destination Locations?

I can't seem to figure out how to do this on the DROID.Even though it is still a bit buggy (beta and all),I love the application, but I have noticed that specific addresses can be off by a block or two.I would like to be able to tell the phone that the correct position of this address is here.

Android :: Draw A Bitmap By Specifying The X Y Locations Of Four Corners

I want to draw a bitmap on the screen by specifying the x,y locations of the four corners. I.e. I have a square bitmap and I would like to draw the:


I have seen the Canvas method: public void drawBitmap (Bitmap bitmap, Rect src, RectF dst, Paint paint)

However I believe this takes the top, right, bottom and left coordinates to draw the Bitmap and not the corner coordinates. I need to specify the CORNER coordinates to draw the bitmap as I may need to stretch/distort the Bitmap (I am drawing the Bitmap on a 3D spherical model).

Android :: Projects In Two Different Locations And Importing In Eclipse?

Is this how it is? We cant import the same project from its 2nd location in eclipse? Everytime I delete the project from old location and put it in new. I know, it is a very unacceptable approach).

HTC Desire :: Google Latitude - Routine Locations

May 28, 2010

How much have people played around with this app? I find it both amazing and scary. Only had it running a couple of days, but very curious to see it mapping my location history. Has anyone tried the so called "routine" learning features, where it alerts you if a friend comes within range when your outside your routine locations? How long did it take to suss out your routine?

I love the idea of this thing coming onstream just as the festival season kicks off. "Navigate to Jennie" is going to a lot of fun in a big crowd! But then won't Latitude be constantly alerting me everyday of the festival? Could get annoying! But I love the idea of going out on a night and using latitude for everyone to meet up. The only snag is the map scales we have currently aren't detailed enough to make it really useful. But what other uses have people found for it? Another thing I don't understand is that Google My Tracks and Latitude seem to duplicate their functionality a bit - why do they overlap them? Latitude could really be a lot of fun. Or a lot of trouble. Any opinions?
