So at the moment I'm looking for a way to show the live position of an android device.
Mainly for a way to let the device send it's current GPS-position.
All apps I've been looking at only allow to view the position on a map,
but I'd like to have an output which looks like this:

58.44506783    19.07926087

How do I do it on the Android site?
Is there an App that allows me to send the location to a Website, which i can read out?
Or is it possible with another protocol?
I the end I'd like to view the output on a Linux commandline.
If there is a direct way to do it? (But I'm probably fine to write a simple shell script)

I would really appreciate every Input/Idea,
Simon (aka some random art student)

  • Don't think so, though I'm not sure. – Wrichik Basu Nov 4 '17 at 18:34
  • Note that asking for app recommendations is off-topic here (take a look at Where to ask for app recommendations?) But what you want to do is perfectly feasible. Simply check my corresponding app-list – some of them (eg. Traccar) do exactly that: sending your current position to a server you define. – Izzy Nov 4 '17 at 18:58
