Android contains a permission called ‘ACCESS_LOCATION_EXTRA_COMMANDS’. Normal location commands would involve accessing coarse/fine location. Does anyone know what kind of extra commands this permission allows the app to access ?
According to a rough search in Android source code, it indicate that
LocationManager.sendExtraCommand() need this permission exactly.
I only know of 1 command which can be uses when you have a slow GPS fix:
((LocationManager)YourActivity.this.getSystemService("location")).sendExtraCommand("gps", "delete_aiding_data", null);
and in the Manifest:
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_LOCATION_EXTRA_COMMANDS" />
