                        // String address = data.getStringExtra(MapUtility.ADDRESS);
                        double currentLatitude = data.getDoubleExtra(MapUtility.LATITUDE, 0.0);
                        double currentLongitude = data.getDoubleExtra(MapUtility.LONGITUDE, 0.0);
                        Bundle completeAddress =data.getBundleExtra("fullAddress");

                                (completeAddress.getString("city")).append("\npostalcode: ").append
                                (completeAddress.getString("postalcode")).append("\nstate: ").append
                                (completeAddress.getString("state")).toString());

                        txtLatLong.setText(new StringBuilder().append("Lat:").append(currentLatitude).append
                                ("  Long:").append(currentLongitude).toString());

                    }
                } catch (Exception ex) {
                    ex.printStackTrace();
                }
            }
    }
    

Extra Feature 😉


To open the LocationPicker with pre-selected location, just add extras to the Intent as below:
      Intent intent = new Intent(EditorActivity.this, LocationPickerActivity.class);
      intent.putExtra(MapUtility.COUNTRY_ISO_CODE, "US"); // Only show US locations
      intent.putExtra(MapUtility.ADDRESS,address);
      intent.putExtra(MapUtility.LATITUDE, latitude);
      intent.putExtra(MapUtility.LONGITUDE, longitude);
      startActivityForResult(intent, ADDRESS_PICKER_REQUEST);
