Android GPS Location Without Internet

I want to develop an Application which will store the Longitude and Latitude of
an Android device into device internal database, Using Device's GPS Chip and Not using Internet at all.

Can some one provide me the source code for the same.

Hello shahjagat,

While I won't provide you with a fully functional example application, I can show you some useful links that you could use in order to achieve your goal:

- Here is how to create a database for your android application
- Here is how to get your GPS coordinates

Now you should be able to do your application just by combining those two pieces of information (creating your own DB application + getting your GPS coordinates + saving your coordinates into your database). As you can see, it doesn't implies using internet connection at all.

Good luck!

In the tutorial on gps replace the line

provider = locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, false);


provider = LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER;

This will force the activity to use gps rather than network. In my experience android always defaults to 'network' even when there is no network connectivity.

Thanks Argenti,


I am new android developer

I am using below code, but it does not return latitude and longitude when internet is OFF,
I also want to calculate speed, distance covered and odometer reading ,
My device will be inside the bus and in the region where there is no internet.

Any help will be appreciated,  

My code
locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER,MIN_TIME_BW_UPDATES,MIN_DISTANCE_CHANGE_FOR_UPDATES, this);
if (locationManager != null)
             location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);
            if (location != null) {
                  latitude = location.getLatitude();
                  longitude = location.getLongitude();
