GeoLocation Support?

Postby jermpatrick » Tue May 25, 2010 3:23 pm

Does Android only have GPS locating? I can't find any information on Android offering cell-site or Wi-Fi locating.

Android support both:

1)For GPS you use:
LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER

2)and for wi-fi and cell-towers you use:
LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER

Is it possible to scan Wi-Fi networks and get notification when an unsecure/free Wi-Fi point is found?

Also, is it possible to get details on WiFi networks such as the Mac address?
