Grate, I hope you watched the complete video. Please find the important code related to this video.


Please add the following permissions into your Android Manifest file.

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_GPS" />

    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_LOCATION" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />


Now get the code for GPSUtils.kt Class file. This is really very important code for you.

import android.content.Context
import android.location.LocationManager
import android.util.Log
import android.widget.Toast
import java.lang.Exception

class GPSUtils(context: Context) {
    private val TAG = "GPS"
    private val mContext: Context = context

    private var mSettingClient: SettingsClient? = null
    private var mLocationSettingsRequest: LocationSettingsRequest? = null

    private var mLocationManager: LocationManager? = null
    private var mLocationRequest: LocationRequest? = null

    init {
        mLocationManager = mContext.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE) as? LocationManager

        mSettingClient = LocationServices.getSettingsClient(mContext)

        mLocationRequest = LocationRequest.create()
        mLocationRequest?.priority = LocationRequest.PRIORITY_HIGH_ACCURACY

        mLocationRequest?.interval = 1000
        mLocationRequest?.fastestInterval = 500

        if (mLocationRequest != null) {
            val builder: LocationSettingsRequest.Builder = LocationSettingsRequest.Builder()
            mLocationSettingsRequest =

    fun turnOnGPS() {
        if (mLocationManager?.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER) == false) {
                ?.addOnSuccessListener(mContext as Activity) {
                    Log.d(TAG, "turnOnGPS: Already Enabled")
                ?.addOnFailureListener { ex ->
                    if ((ex as ApiException).statusCode
                        == LocationSettingsStatusCodes.RESOLUTION_REQUIRED
                    ) {
                        try {
                            val resolvableApiException = ex as ResolvableApiException
                                mContext as Activity,
                        } catch (e: Exception) {
                            Log.d(TAG, "turnOnGPS: Unable to start default functionality of GPS")

                    } else {
                        if (ex.statusCode == LocationSettingsStatusCodes.SETTINGS_CHANGE_UNAVAILABLE) {
                            val errorMessage =
                                "Location settings are inadequate, and cannot be " +
                                        "fixed here. Fix in Settings."
                            Log.e(TAG, errorMessage)

Create Job. After that get the code for MainActivity.kt File. From where we are calling the above written code.

import android.content.Intent
import android.os.Bundle
import android.util.Log

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity() {

    private val TAG = "MAIN_ACTIVITY"

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {

        //Add The Following line


    //Integrate the onActivityResult function for the better output
    override fun onActivityResult(requestCode: Int, resultCode: Int, data: Intent?) {
        super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data)

        if (resultCode == Activity.RESULT_OK) {
            if (requestCode == IConstant.DEFAULTS.GPS_CODE) {
                Log.d(TAG, "onActivityResult: SUCCESS")
            } else {
        } else {

Grate Job, After all that, Do not forget to add the permission code shown in the above video. And the above code will be given as below.

    object DEFAULTS {
        const val GPS_CODE = 1002
