I updated to the new version of the XAP today (v0.5.5) and now my gps in my emulators isn't working. It seems to be taking my longitude setting and using it for latitude, and using 0 as my longitude.
Is anyone having this problem?
This is fixed in master, and should be present in 0.5.7+.
Yes, I am.
Hi @TimF, @MarkFryer - this seems to be an unfortunate side effect of the recent update to android sdk tools. I will forward the issue on.
Would love an update/fix for this, unfortunately makes any kind of location testing impossible.
Hi @TimF, @MarkFryer unfortunately I was misinformed - it doesn't seem to be related to the update to android sdk tools, but it is being investigated.
Thanks for the update @LachlanMackenzie and @MarkSimpson
I'm getting this same issue now. Any status?
@JamesWeaver Yes, please see the accepted answer (first reply on the thread)
Thanks @MarkSimpson. I am relatively new to Xamarin so I am not up to speed on where everything is at. I have XAP 0.5.6, it tells me that there is no update. You reference "master" so I'm assuming you are referring to a source repository. Where can we get this? Or are you saying, "Stay tuned to v0.5.7?
Hi James, no worries - we all start somewhere I got quite confused when I first started using this forum when accepted answers got moved around!
You are quite correct, 0.5.6 is currently the latest released version. My reference to master was the to the development build which is not publicly available, I just wanted to assure people that it was fixed. I am indeed saying stay tuned for v.0.5.7+
hi, I still have this problem... any solution or fix ? Suggestions are welcome too! thx!
@gilbertomacedo : I just downgraded to the previous version that worked, and I ignore the auto update messages now.
I don't know if it will help but I tried on and old tablet (Android API 15) and the GPS worked.
I did a factory reset on my test device (Android with API 16) and worked by very first time I ran the app.
After update Google Play Services on device - asked to do it by device's system - the GPS stopped again...
Thank you TimF!
I'll look how to downgrade!
@gilbertomacedo I was talking about the Xamarin Android Player. If you're having trouble on actual devices, that could be a different issue.
doh...sorry TimF, I thought was about xamarin update itself...thx
