Get current location every n minutes in android

I want to get the

latitude
and
longitude
every n minutes and then use them in my app for setting the user in an area. The only problem is that I don't know how to get the
location
every -let's say- 2 minutes... PS. I'm using both
GPS
and
WiFi

Answer

just adjust it according to your need.

    Timer timer = new Timer ();
    TimerTask hourlyTask = new TimerTask () {
    @Override
    public void run () {
        // check if GPS enabled
        GPSTracker gpsTracker = new GPSTracker(this);
        if (gpsTracker.getIsGPSTrackingEnabled()){
            String stringLatitude = String.valueOf(gpsTracker.latitude);
            String stringLongitude = String.valueOf(gpsTracker.longitude);
            }
        }
    };

// schedule the task to RUN every hour
timer.schedule (hourlyTask, 0l, 1000*60*60);   // 1000*10*60 every 10 minut
