    Lean to get gps location in android using LocationManager and LocationListener.
    Add permissions to your manifest file:

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />

    Then you need to get location using below code snippet:
    `locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);

    locationManager.requestLocationUpdates( LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER,
    10, this);`
