    Question Appinventor - use both "gps" & "network" for location data

    Hi,

    I am working on a simple program to record my GPS coordination by following the examples given in web.
    However I have noted that provider status is always set to "network passive gps" in my app which I assume location details are fetched using the network. the accuracy of the data are not sufficient.
    I know its possible to lock/set to "network" or "gps" but then it will use only the specified provider. when set to GPS it will take much time to record lat/long data and when it is set to network it gets data only from service provider where the accuracy is low.
    Is it possible to use both at the same time and get more accurate and speedy response(similar to AGPS facility when you open the google map).
    Please advice
    Thanks

    I think you can combine net and gps together.
    for example : check net for each minute, and check gps for 30 minutes.
    Net provider is very good accuracy about 0-50 meters, it is good enough for you.
    But something GPS need to correct net,
    use net to defect moveing, if it is moving turn on gps for each minute, when device is stop, net is turn on and gps turn off.
    Normally device is not move to much.
