Location Updates

Demonstrates how to use the Fused Location Provider API to get updates about a device's location. The Fused Location Provider is part of the Google Play services Location APIs.

Introduction

This sample builds on the BasicLocationSample sample included in this repo, and allows the user to request periodic location updates. In response, the API updates the app periodically with the best available location, based on the currently-available location providers such as WiFi and GPS (Global Positioning System). The accuracy of the location is also determined by the location permissions you've requested (we use the ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION here) and the options you set in the location request.

This sample uses Google Play services (GoogleApiClient) and the FusedLocationApi.

To run this sample, location must be enabled.

Prerequisites

  • Android API Level >v9
  • Android Build Tools >v21
