                //               locationTracker.stopLocationService(getBaseContext());
                //            }

Create your BroadcastReceiver to get informations of location

public class LocationReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver implements ILocationConstants {

    @Override
    public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {
        if (null != intent && intent.getAction().equals("my.action")) {
            Location locationData = (Location) intent.getParcelableExtra(SettingsLocationTracker.LOCATION_MESSAGE);
            Log.d("Location: ", "Latitude: " + locationData.getLatitude() + "Longitude:" + locationData.getLongitude());
            //send your call to api or do any things with the of location data
        }
    }
}
