I want to Implement a location listener in my app which will run in the background, even when the app is closed. I found a lot of result for implementing the location listener but is still confused.
My use-case is to get the location in all possible ways, whether it be GPS, Network provider or any other way. The app needs to update location periodically in the background
I found example similar to below to get the precise location:
LocationManager lm = getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE); LocationListener ll = new mylocationlistener(); lm.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER, 0, 0, ll); this doesn't work very accurate, the listener didn't work in background service.
so is this the best way to get the location in the background. Most of the posts I found seem OLD, do we have a better way to implement background location listener in newer API's.
I searched StackOverflow for the same but didn't found a relevant post, if there a post which answers the same, please share the link. Or let me know whats the best way to implement it.
Thanks in advance
