Postby smbogdan » Thu May 26, 2011 6:35 pm

Hello there, I am trying to get the gps coordinates and pass them between classes, but i found a little problem, one method is static and the "getSystemService"method isn't, is it possible to fix this issue?

If you could post your code here, we can definatly look into the exact problem.

The basic steps to retrieve location co-ordinates from the device is to use Location Manager and get its instance from getSystemService by providing context as LOCATION_SERVICE and then we need to call requestLocationUpdate on location manager by providing which kind of location updates your application wants (GPS or Network) and provides a listener for that. In the listener, application will start updating the co-ordinates.
