  ..debug = true
  ..label = "label";

// init sensor
var sensor = new LocationsSensor(config);

void method(){
    /// start 
    /// set observer
    sensor.onLocationChanged.listen(LocationData data){
        // Your code here
    /// stop
    /// sync
    // make a sensor care by the following code
    var card = new LocationCard(sensor:sensor);
    // NEXT: Add the card instance into a target Widget.
