SDK for Android positioning interface allows applications to choose from two different location information sources:
- Basic Positioning is described in Basic Positioning and provides a simple interface to the location information provided by Android platform. This location source is always at the developer's disposal regardless of SDK for Android license.
- Advanded Positioning by HERE is described in Advanced Positioning by HERE. Advanced positioning is accessed via the same interface as the Basic Positioning but the underlying location source is HERE Positioning that provides developers, amongst other things, advanced offline network positioning as well as indoor positioning. Note: To use HERE Positioning, one or more HERE Positioning features need to be enabled in SDK for Android license.
