GPS on a PQ-device

  How can i test the app on a  PQ-device?

  I think tall request location is too long. 15-20 minutes on the balcony - I have  achieved nothing.
 Maybe you must get and put sim card in there. But i can not do it.

You can get your GPS location onthe Gear S without simcard if you're connecting it on the phone.



Have you tested on RD-PQ device?

Make sure that you have installed GPS driver on device.

On M0 RD-PQ device we have achieved to check gps location without sim card. Check the driver like it was proposed above.

 My problem with GPS is going on - i flashed device in 2.3 and returned in 2.2.1- and google map and my app works on device

 But user location position is wrong in google and my location app on device

What can be reason of that?

The GPS position is hardcoded, so you can not use the correct position ...

do you mean this is only for test device?

Ok, but how  i can test GPS?!...

Emulator doesn't want work even if i inject position in Control Panel

Marco Buettner

Yeah, on retail devices like Z1 it works perfect, but on RD-PQ and so on, you will have always the same gps position... everywhere... Did you try a injection on rd-pq?

Kilim A

No i try to test GPS-work on emulator ( see screenshoot above). I is injecting  the position ( marker) in Contr. Panel. Then i try  to watch location on app in Emul.  Nothing  is changed.

Simlator works fine

Simulator isn't a real testsuite ... It used your PC environment and has nothing to do with Tizen in my opinion... It is a short help for UI issues in my opinion, but not for real tests...

 If  device work - emulator doesn't want change position

 I can not give screenshoot - Mollom write to me abouut spam-filter
