Hi,
I am working on a simple program to locate my GPS coordination by following the examples given in sites.
However I have noted that available provider status is always set to "network passive gps" which I assume location details are fetched using the network. the accuracy of the data are not sufficient.
I know its possible to set the provider to "network" or "gps" but then it will use the specified provider only(specified in tag).
Is it possible to use both network and gps at the same time and get more accurate and speedy response. Its something like using AGPS facility when you open the google map.
Please advice
Thanks
Asela
