Android Question

OnLocationChanged callback is never called

I am trying to get the users current location using the

LocationManager
. I have done a lot of research and can't seem to find anyone with the same problem. The
OnLocationChanged
callback never seems to be called. Below is my various code and the logcat.

protected LocationListener locationListener;
protected LocationManager locationManager;
protected Context context;


My
OnCreate()
method

@Override
public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
Log.v(TAG, "IN ON CREATE");

this.context = getActivity();

registerLocationUpdates();
}


My
registerLocationUpdates
method

void registerLocationUpdates() {
Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
criteria.setAccuracy(Criteria.ACCURACY_LOW);
criteria.setPowerRequirement(Criteria.POWER_LOW);
criteria.setAltitudeRequired(false);
criteria.setBearingRequired(false);

locationManager = (LocationManager)getActivity().getSystemService(LOCATION_SERVICE);

provider = locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, true);

// Cant get a hold of provider
if (provider == null) {
Log.v(TAG, "Provider is null");
showNoProvider();
return;
} else {
Log.v(TAG, "Provider: " + provider);
}

locationListener = new MyLocationListener();

locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(provider, 1L, 1f, locationListener);

// connect to the GPS location service
Location oldLocation = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(provider);

if (oldLocation != null) {
Log.v(TAG, "Got Old location");
latitude = Double.toString(oldLocation.getLatitude());
longitude = Double.toString(oldLocation.getLongitude());
waitingForLocationUpdate = false;
getNearbyStores();
} else {
Log.v(TAG, "NO Last Location found");
}
}


My
LocationListener


private class MyLocationListener implements LocationListener {

public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
latitude = Double.toString(location.getLatitude());
longitude = Double.toString(location.getLongitude());

Log.v(TAG, "IN ON LOCATION CHANGE");

if (waitingForLocationUpdate) {
getNearbyStores();
waitingForLocationUpdate = false;
}

locationManager.removeUpdates(this);
}

public void onStatusChanged(String s, int i, Bundle bundle) {
Log.v(TAG, "Status changed: " + s);
}

public void onProviderEnabled(String s) {
Log.e(TAG, "PROVIDER DISABLED: " + s);
}

public void onProviderDisabled(String s) {
Log.e(TAG, "PROVIDER DISABLED: " + s);
}
}


My permissions in the AndroidManifest

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />


And finally the logcat after I run my app

And the android SDK location parts of the logcat keep repeating them selves. I have tried everything that i can think of and have seen on google and stackoverflow. Als just as a side note i have been able to get it to work on a 2.3 device using the
requestSingleUpdate
which is available in API 9 and by following the guide A Deep Dive into Location but i need it to work on 2.1 or 2.2 and higher using the old SDK. SO if you have any hints or would like to know more please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Answer

It looks like you setup should work, since it doesn't, I would make your example as simple as possible in order to troubleshoot. I would make your request look like

requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER, 0, 0, locationListener);
requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER, 0, 0, locationListener);

This way you get ALL the updates possible. And comment out the part about getting the last known location. It's not needed yet.

Then in onLocationChanged(), just have

Log.v(TAG, "IN ON LOCATION CHANGE, lat=" + latitude + ", lon=" + longitude);

Comment out the rest so that you keep your listener active. This should give you a stream of updates on a real device. On the emulator, you'll need to use DDMS, and you'll get one GPS update each time you press send.
