regarding gps

Postby adameve24 » Tue Dec 28, 2010 8:35 pm

hi all,
is gps operation enabled on android emulator 2.0 ?
if yes, hoe can I detect it using adb shell and switch it on ?
The geo fix command stores the latitude and longitude. Can you tell me where they are stored in the phone ( i mean mydroid folder) and how can I retrieve those values using adb shell.
the folder "location" at location /data/misc/location is not present. I created it and a subfolder named gps also in it. but no changes are made to it or no files are written in it by the emulator.

So please try to answer my queries. i have searched these doubts on the forum but no answer makes use of adb shell.
I want to use adb shell only.

basicaly i want to query locationmanager using adb shell.
can anyone tell me how to do that ?

happy new year

You can connect to the Emulator throough Telnet. You then have a Emulator system that allows you to get into certain information like geo fixes, network etc.
