Fused location provider provided by Xiaomi seems terrible


Dec 15, 2021
H Xiaomi!

We are developing a medical physical test at Kiplin that rely on location services in order to measure the distance you can walk in 6 minutes.

We ask for finest accuracy but still have bad results on Xiaomi phones. We found out that Xiaomi phones do not use native Android fused location provider but its own package com.xiaomi.location.fused. It's probably done to better control battery life. But its provides bad accuracy for our medical test result. Other phone builders do not have their own location provider so that out application have very good accuracy on Samsung for example...

My question is : how can we force use of GPS on Xiaomi phones while using fused location Android API ?

Thanks in advance for your feedback
