Droid latitude not updating - Freesex meet
I’ve experimented with this setting by leaving it running, and it drained a fully charge Samsung Galaxy SIII in less than 3 hours. It takes considerable power to run the current generation of GPS chips.
This setting can result in your app accessing the GPS provider as often as 50 – 60 times or more per minute.
So, carefully evaluate your use cases and be conservative about the time and distance properties that are needed.
Except for high performance situations, it will be rare when you need location access every second at a zero distance delta.
So, this post focuses on working with real-time locations.
Once you activate the location listeners they will start sending you information and knowing how to handle that data is what this post is about.
The most important take away I hope to leave you with is take time to understand your accuracy requirements and your user’s basic geographic behavior patterns.
I’ve tried to liberally sprinkle example use cases to help illustrate some of the concepts. The first thing you’ll notice when you start building location aware Android apps is you can set time and distance properties that affect how often the device will request a location update.Other factors that affect acquisition times can be as simple as where you placed the phone in the car such as down by the gear shift between the seats or up on the dashboard.Or the user could be standing just inside a restaurant under a metal awning because it’s raining outside. Cement, bricks, metal, car bodies, heavy foliage and buildings are some other examples of things that can interfere with GPS signal accuracy and the time to first acquisition.By warm I’m referring to a device where the GPS and Network location have been accessed recently.How long it takes to start getting accurate results depends on many different factors of which you, as the developer, will have very little control over but you’ll need to plan for accordingly.According to Google user interface responsiveness guidelines 100 to 200 milliseconds is where users will start to perceive slowness and we are talking about 9 whole seconds here that the user had to wait.
