Example

The code below retrieves location data from the Android device's GPS sensor, posts them to the test log and shows the location in Google Maps:

JavaScript, JScript

function PostGPSLocation()
{
  Mobile.SetCurrent("Nexus 7");
  // Enable GPS
  Mobile.Device().GPS.GPSEnabled = true;
  // Obtain location data
  var Longt = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Longitude;
  var Lat = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Latitude;
  // Output the location data
  Log.Message("The device location is:");
  Log.Message("Longitude: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt));
  Log.Message("Latitude: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat));
  Log.Message("Altitude: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Altitude));
  Log.Message("Accuracy: " + aqConvert.VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Accuracy));
  // Open Google Maps in the browser and pass the coordinates as URL parameters
  Browsers.Item(Browsers.btIExplorer).Run("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:" + aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat) + "," + aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt));
}

Python

def PostGPSLocation():
  Mobile.SetCurrent("Nexus 7")
  # Enable GPS
  Mobile.Device().GPS.GPSEnabled = True
  # Obtain location data
  Longt = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Longitude
  Lat = Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Latitude
  # Output the location data
  Log.Message("The device location is:")
  Log.Message("Longitude: " + IntToStr(Longt))
  Log.Message("Latitude: " + IntToStr(Lat))
  Log.Message("Altitude: " + VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Altitude))
  Log.Message("Accuracy: "+ VarToStr(Mobile.Device().GPS.Location.Accuracy))
  # Open Google Maps in the browser and pass the coordinates as URL parameters
  Browsers.Item[Browsers.btIExplorer].Run("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:" + IntToStr(Lat) + "," + IntToStr(Longt))

VBScript

Sub PostGPSLocation

  Call Browsers.Item(Browsers.btIExplorer).Run("http://maps.google.com/maps?q=loc:" & aqConvert.VarToStr(Lat) & "," & aqConvert.VarToStr(Longt))
End Sub

DelphiScript

  Mobile.SetCurrent('Nexus 7');
  // Enable GPS
  Mobile.Device.GPS.GPSEnabled := true;
  // Obtain location data
