Usage #

import 'package:trust_location/trust_location.dart';
...
String location = await TrustLocation.getLocation;
bool isMockLocation = await TrustLocation.isMockLocation;
...

Example #

import 'package:flutter/material.dart';
import 'dart:async';

import 'package:flutter/services.dart';
import 'package:trust_location/trust_location.dart';

import 'package:location_permissions/location_permissions.dart';

void main() => runApp(MyApp());

  @override
  _MyAppState createState() => _MyAppState();
}

  String _location = "None";
  bool _isMockLocation = false;
  Timer getLocationCallback;

  @override
  void initState() {
    super.initState();
    WidgetsBinding.instance.addObserver(this);
    getLocationPermission();
    executeGetLocationCallback();
  }

  void executeGetLocationCallback() {
    getLocationCallback =
        Timer.periodic(Duration(seconds: 5), (Timer t) => _getLocation());
  }

  Future<void> _getLocation() async {
    String location;
    bool isMockLocation;
    try {
      location = await TrustLocation.getLocation;
      isMockLocation = await TrustLocation.isMockLocation;
    } on PlatformException catch(e) {
      print('PlatformException $e');
    }
    setState(() {
      _location = location;
      _isMockLocation = isMockLocation;
    });
  }

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return MaterialApp(
      home: Scaffold(
        appBar: AppBar(

            ],
          )),
        ),
      ),
    );
  }

  void getLocationPermission() async {
    PermissionStatus permission =
        await LocationPermissions().requestPermissions();
    print('permissions: $permission');
  }

  @override
  void didChangeAppLifecycleState(AppLifecycleState state) {
    if (state == AppLifecycleState.resumed) {
      executeGetLocationCallback();
    }
    if (state == AppLifecycleState.inactive) {
      getLocationCallback.cancel();

  @override
  void dispose() {
    WidgetsBinding.instance.removeObserver(this);
