    Default Accessing the location manager of a device?

    Hey guys. I've searched everywhere trying to make a small application that returns my current localization. Ideally I would like to see it in Google maps, but latitude and longitude would do. I have done a few youtube videos that are supposed to help, but they didn't work. Could someone suggest me a good video or page that does a step-by-step tutorial that actually returns the location?

    Thanks a lot!

    I don't know Android programming. What you're asking for sounds like what a GPS would return. Try searching for how to access the GPS.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
