Facing Gps problem for some strom on verzion..

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

I have implemented code  to find the gps location .this works it works for other device and also for strom on verzion(carrier) but on some verzion(carrier) it does not work.

Snipped of the code that i m using is ..

 

            Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
            //To specify that this mode can incur cost, invoke
            criteria.setCostAllowed(false);
            
            //To get Accurate Location Information
           
            //To get Approximate Location Information
            criteria.setHorizontalAccuracy(Criteria.NO_REQUIREMENT);
            criteria.setVerticalAccuracy(Criteria.NO_REQUIREMENT);
            //To specify power consumption is high,
            criteria.setPreferredPowerConsumption(Criteria.POWER_USAGE_MEDIUM);
            LocationProvider provider = LocationProvider.getInstance(criteria);
            Location location = null;

            location = provider.getLocation(60);

            QualifiedCoordinates coordinates = location.getQualifiedCoordinates();
            double templat = coordinates.getLatitude();
            double templon = coordinates.getLongitude();

 

this is the code snip that i m using . is there some think else that i have to set for verzion on strom ..

I think you need to set POWER_USAGE_HIGH to get the GPS to work correctly.

Higher battery utilization is the price you pay for using the on-board GPS.
