Default LocationProvider explanation.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys,

when using location provider I've been doing the following:

Code:
_locationProvider.setLocationListener(new LocationListenerImpl(), 300, 15, 10);
My question is to do with the passed variables:

int interval,
int timeout,
int maxAge

Interval is set at 300 seconds, does this mean the Location provider 'wakes up' after five minutes and gets a single position report, or is it constantly updating?

Timeout, this is the time in seconds the GPS chip has to get a report after five minutes?

Max age, this should be OLDER than timeout? because if timeout is 15 (meaning the GPS chip COULD get a report in the first 4 seconds) and the maxAge is 10 (anything older than 10 seconds is discarded) a location recieved in the first 4 seconds would be ignored?

Answering my own question, from nokia database:

Quote:
With this it is possible to define the following
parameters: the interval (in seconds) at which the application wants to receive events; the timeout
value, which indicates how late (in seconds) an update is allowed to be in comparison to the defined
interval; the maxage value, which defines how old the location update value is allowed to be.
