How to Get Device Lat Long in Flutter

  • First of all. All You Need is GeoLocation package. So define on pubspec.yaml file and then get that dependencies. Same like below.
dependencies:
  flutter:
    sdk: flutter
  geolocation: ^1.1.2
  • Now. For Android Users, you Must have to define below both line in your Flutter_project_path/android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml File Exactly Like below.
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
  • For iOS users, You need to declare the description for the desired permission in ios/Runner/Info.plist:
<dict>
  <!-- for iOS 11 + -->
  <key>NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
  <string>Reason why app needs location</string>
  <key>NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription</key>
  <string>Reason why app needs location</string>

  <!-- additionally for iOS 9/10, if you need always permission -->
  <key>NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription</key>
  <string>Reason why app needs location</string>
  ...
</dict>
  • Now, import geolocation.dart in your file where you want lat and long.
import 'package:geolocation/geolocation.dart';
  • Define latitude and longitude that you want to use. In my case i need lat long in String Formate so i am defining String.
  String latitude = '00.00000';
  String longitude = '00.00000';
  • Now Create Method named _getCurrentLocation with async Like Below.
  _getCurrentLocation() async {
    Geolocation.enableLocationServices().then((result) {
      // Request location
      // print(result);
    }).catchError((e) {
      // Location Services Enablind Cancelled
      // print(e);
    });

    Geolocation.currentLocation(accuracy: LocationAccuracy.best)
        .listen((result) {
      if (result.isSuccessful) {
        setState(() {
          latitude = result.location.latitude.toString();
          longitude = result.location.longitude.toString();
        });
      }
    });
  }
  • Now Trigger This Method where you wanna use. If users allow for location it will give you lat long
  • also you can customize accuracy: LocationAccuracy.best by refering its Documentation file.
  • i am giving my source code here that will help you to understand.
import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'package:geolocation/geolocation.dart';

class GetUserLatLong extends StatefulWidget {
  @override
  _GetUserLatLongState createState() => _GetUserLatLongState();
}

class _GetUserLatLongState extends State<GetUserLatLong> {
  String latitude = '00.00000';
  String longitude = '00.00000';

  _getCurrentLocation() async {
    Geolocation.enableLocationServices().then((result) {
      // Request location
      // print(result);
    }).catchError((e) {
      // Location Services Enablind Cancelled
      // print(e);
    });

    Geolocation.currentLocation(accuracy: LocationAccuracy.best)
        .listen((result) {
      if (result.isSuccessful) {
        setState(() {
          latitude = result.location.latitude.toString();
          longitude = result.location.longitude.toString();
        });
      }
    });
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      appBar: AppBar(
        title: Text("Location"),
      ),
      body: Center(
        child: Column(
          mainAxisAlignment: MainAxisAlignment.center,
          children: <Widget>[
            Text("Lattitude is : ${latitude} And Longitude Is: ${longitude}"),
            FlatButton(
              child: Text("Get location"),
              onPressed: () {
                _getCurrentLocation();
              },
            ),
          ],
        ),
      ),
    );
  }
}
