Android: Get Latitude and Longitude of the mobile device

With google things changes very often: non of the previous answers worked for me.

April 2016

based on this google training here is how you do it using

fused location provider

this requires Set Up Google Play Services

Activity class

 

public class GPSTrackerActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements
    GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks,     
 GoogleApiClient.OnConnectionFailedListener {

private GoogleApiClient mGoogleApiClient;
Location mLastLocation;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    if (mGoogleApiClient == null) {
        mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)
                .addConnectionCallbacks(this)
                .addOnConnectionFailedListener(this)
                .addApi(LocationServices.API)
                .build();
    }

}

protected void onStart() {
    mGoogleApiClient.connect();
    super.onStart();
}

protected void onStop() {
    mGoogleApiClient.disconnect();
    super.onStop();
}

@Override
public void onConnected(Bundle bundle) {
    try {

        mLastLocation = LocationServices.FusedLocationApi.getLastLocation(
                mGoogleApiClient);
        if (mLastLocation != null) {
            Intent intent = new Intent();
            intent.putExtra("Longitude", mLastLocation.getLongitude());
            intent.putExtra("Latitude", mLastLocation.getLatitude());
            setResult(1,intent);
            finish();

        }
    } catch (SecurityException e) {

    }

}

@Override
public void onConnectionSuspended(int i) {

}

@Override
public void onConnectionFailed(ConnectionResult connectionResult) {

}
}

usage

in you activity

Intent intent = new Intent(context, GPSTrackerActivity.class);
    startActivityForResult(intent,1);

And this method

protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if(requestCode == 1){
        Bundle extras = data.getExtras();
        Double longitude = extras.getDouble("Longitude");
        Double latitude = extras.getDouble("Latitude");
    }
}
