XamarinLabs Geolocation & Google Location Services on Android in Forms


I'm using the geoLocation Plugin from labs

Sometimes I'm having problems when indoor to get the location.

Due this fact I was thinking of a hybrid solution between Labs and Google Location Service, since I was told that Google Location Services has a better approach and accuracy for location.

My question is... Is this possible to do? And is it worth?

The Google Services is really better?

Thank you very much :)

    Someone could help in this matter?

    For what I have read about Google Location Services and Fused Location Provider,
    the main diference in relation with Android API and LocationManager is that Google Services handles automatically the changes in providers...

    However for what I could see the Labs Version of geolocation already uses all providers available...

    This way... The google services has a great difference? It would help in indoor locations?
