Location Services

Location Provider


On devices with Google apps installed, there are some „Location Providers“ already available – but not everybody likes to share his location with Google. Luckily, there are alternatives – GApps installed or not. These are usually working with UnifiedNlp, a component of microG. If you want to contribute to coverage and quality, please see below, WLAN WarDriving and Monitoring & Mapping.

Important note: starting with version 0.2.28, microG no longer supports the UnifiedNLP modules. See here for details on possible future support.

Data Gathering for above Location Providers


Some of above listed Location Providers are based on communities gathering WiFi and cell locations to improve coverage and quality, making it a „give and take“. If you want to participate, you can do so e.g. with the following apps.

Test location providers


These apps can be used to find out whether your location backends work and how accurate they are.
