Change GPS location of Android Emulator

In order to test GPS function of a Android Application, DDMS of Android SDK can help to change GPS location of Android Emuator.

Change to DDMS in Eclipse:
Click Window->Open Perspective->DDMS

Scroll down in Emulator Control on the left, till Location Controls



type in Longitude and Latitude, and click Send.

Nice post. I didn't know about this way through Eclipse.

I got fed up with having to manually telnet to the emulator and specify exact latitude and longitude coordinates.

I put together a little browser-based program that uses GWT and Google Maps to set the geo fix coordinates by clicking on a map.

android-gps-emulator

It's open source and can hopefully be of use to other developers out there!
