How to enable/disable the GPS programmatically in Android?


This example demonstrates how do I get enable/disable GPS programmatically in android.

Step 1 − Create a new project in Android Studio, go to File ⇒ New Project and fill all required details to create a new project.

Step 2 − Add the following code to res/layout/activity_main.xml.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
   xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
   android:layout_width="match_parent"
   android:layout_height="match_parent"
   tools:context="MainActivity" >
   <Button
      android:id="@+id/button1"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_alignTop="@+id/textView1"
      android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
      android:layout_marginTop="70dp"
      android:text="Click Here to Enable Disable GPS
      location service!" />
   <TextView
      android:id="@+id/textView1"
      android:layout_width="wrap_content"
      android:layout_height="wrap_content"
      android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
      android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
      android:layout_marginTop="132dp"
      android:gravity="center"
      android:text="location service Stauts Shows Here"
      android:textAppearance="?android:attr/textAppearanceLarge" />
</RelativeLayout>

Step 3 − Add the following code to src/MainActivity.java

import android.content.Context;
import android.content.Intent;
import android.location.LocationManager;
import android.provider.Settings;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.TextView;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
   Button button;
   Context context;
   Intent intent1;
   TextView textview;
   LocationManager locationManager ;
   boolean GpsStatus ;
   @Override
   protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
      super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
      setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
      button = (Button)findViewById(R.id.button1);
      textview = (TextView)findViewById(R.id.textView1);
      context = getApplicationContext();
      CheckGpsStatus();
      button.setOnClickListener(new View.OnClickListener() {
         @Override
         public void onClick(View v) {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
            intent1 = new Intent(Settings.ACTION_LOCATION_SOURCE_SETTINGS);
            startActivity(intent1);
         }
      });
   }
   public void CheckGpsStatus(){
      locationManager = (LocationManager)context.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
      assert locationManager != null;
      GpsStatus = locationManager.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);
      if(GpsStatus == true) {
         textview.setText("GPS Is Enabled");
      } else {
         textview.setText("GPS Is Disabled");
      }
   }
}

Step 4 − Add the following code to androidManifest.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="app.com.sample">
   <uses-permission
      android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>
      <application
         android:allowBackup="true"
         android:icon="@mipmap/ic_launcher"
         android:label="@string/app_name"
         android:roundIcon="@mipmap/ic_launcher_round"
         android:supportsRtl="true"
         android:theme="@style/AppTheme">
         <activity android:name=".MainActivity">
            <intent-filter>
               <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN" />
               <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
            </intent-filter>
         </activity>
      </application>
</manifest>

Let's try to run your application. I assume you have connected your actual Android Mobile device with your computer. To run the app from android studio, open one of your project's activity files and click Run  icon from the toolbar. Select your mobile device as an option and then check your mobile device which will display your default screen −
