Prerequisites

  • Android 16

Installing

Step 1:- Add it in your root build.gradle at the end of repositories:

allprojects {
  repositories {
   ...
   maven { url 'https://jitpack.io' }
  }
 }
  

Step 1:- Add the dependency:


  dependencies {
         implementation 'com.github.prabhat1707:EasyWayLocation:1.2'
  }
 
  

Usage

If the device is running Android 6.0 or higher, and your app's target SDK is 29 or highe then first check permission of location then call it.

Add the required permissions

For fine location (GPS location), add the following permission in your AndroidManifest.xml:

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

For coarse location (network location), add the following permission in your AndroidManifest.xml:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />

Retrieve the location from the device

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements Listener {
    EasyWayLocation easyWayLocation;
    private TextView location, latLong, diff;
    private Double lati, longi;

    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        //--
        easyWayLocation = new EasyWayLocation(this, false,this);
    }

    @Override
    public void locationOn() {
        Toast.makeText(this, "Location ON", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();    
    }

   @Override
    public void currentLocation(Location location) {
        StringBuilder data = new StringBuilder();
        data.append(location.getLatitude());
        data.append(" , ");
        data.append(location.getLongitude());
        latLong.setText(data);
        getLocationDetail.getAddress(location.getLatitude(), location.getLongitude(), "xyz");
    }
    
    @Override
    public void locationCancelled() {
         Toast.makeText(this, "Location Cancelled", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
        switch (requestCode) {
            case LOCATION_SETTING_REQUEST_CODE:
                easyWayLocation.onActivityResult(resultCode);
                break;
        }
    }

    @Override
    protected void onResume() {
        super.onResume();
        easyWayLocation.startLocation();
    }

    @Override
    protected void onPause() {
        super.onPause();
        easyWayLocation.endUpdates();

    }
}

Location Notifier

@Override
    public void locationOn() {
        Toast.makeText(this, "Location ON", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        
    }

    @Override
    public void  currentLocation(Location location){
       // give lat and long at every interval 
    }

    @Override
    public void locationCancelled() {
        // location not on
    }
    

Constructor options

Points to Remember

  • if you want only last lcation then pass it true and if false then it give you location update as per default location request.
  • if you don't pass then it take default location request or you can pass your's one also(see constructor 2nd).
Context context = this;
boolean requireFineGranularity = false;
new EasyWayLocation(this, requireLastLocation = false,listner = this);

or

request = new LocationRequest();
request.setInterval(10000);
request.setPriority(LocationRequest.PRIORITY_BALANCED_POWER_ACCURACY);

new EasyWayLocation(this,locationRequest = request ,  requireLastLocation = false,listner = this);


Calculate distance between two points


double startLatitude = 59.95;
double startLongitude = 30.3;
double endLatitude = 44.84;
double endLongitude = -0.58;
location.calculateDistance(startLatitude, startLongitude, endLatitude, endLongitude);

// or

Point startPoint = new EasyWayLocation.Point(59.95, 30.3);
Point endPoint = new EasyWayLocation.Point(44.84, -0.58);
location.calculateDistance(startPoint, endPoint);

Update Get Address Detail's of location.

  • if you want address from current location then you need to pass key and context.
  • why I want key here if android already provide Geocoder because in some cases or in some devices geo coder not work well and throws Exception, so in that case i use google geocode api for fetcth address.
  • For this you need to implement Callback , LocationData.AddressCallBack
GetLocationDetail getLocationDetail = new GetLocationDetail(callback = this, context = this);

getLocationDetail.getAddress(location.getLatitude(), location.getLongitude(), key = "xyz");
