Getting Latitude and Longitude 0.0 in Android M

I am suffering from the problem of getting value 0.0 as latitude and longitude in Android Marshmallow (API 23) i.e. 6.0.

I have searched a lot regarding this but didn't find solution of it. My code is fully working for the other API versions which are less than 23.

I have also put the code for selfPermission and which all are working instead it's giving me 0.0 as late and long.

Please have a look on the way I am following:

GPSTracker.java

public class GPSTracker extends Service implements LocationListener {

private Context mContext;

// Flag for GPS status
boolean isGPSEnabled = false;

// Flag for network status
boolean isNetworkEnabled = false;

// Flag for GPS status
boolean canGetLocation = false;

Location location; // Location
double latitude; // Latitude
double longitude; // Longitude

// The minimum distance to change Updates in meters
private static final long MIN_DISTANCE_CHANGE_FOR_UPDATES = 1000;

// The minimum time between updates in milliseconds
private static final long MIN_TIME_BW_UPDATES = 1000 * 60 * 1; // 1 minute

// Declaring a Location Manager
protected LocationManager locationManager;

Activity activity;

public GPSTracker() {
}

public GPSTracker(Context context, Activity activity) {
this.mContext = context;
this.activity = activity;
getLocation();
}

public Location getLocation() {
try {


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

// Getting GPS status
isGPSEnabled = locationManager
.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);

// Getting network status
isNetworkEnabled = locationManager
.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER);

if (!isGPSEnabled && !isNetworkEnabled) {
// No network provider is enabled
} else {
this.canGetLocation = true;

// \n is for new line

// GPS or network is not enabled.

I have gone through many links provided in Stack Overflow but none of them helped me to solve this problem.

I would appreciate any kind of help here.

Answer

With the help of CommonsWare and Blackkara answer, I was able to solve my problem.

As per their suggestion I have changed my code and have a look after each and every step of my code with debugging.

Due to that I came with the problem that my onLocationChanged() did not get fired in the case of Marshmallow but surprisingly, it gets fire in the case of older devices which are less than Android M or 6.0.

For solving this I have changed my code as below, here I am posting the full code so that anyone who has the same problem can get rid of it.
