Currently there is no method to start the device in High Accuracy mode or change the Accuracy Mode once the device and application has started.
Thank you for the feedback are you looking for this functionality on real Android devices or emulators? Is High Accuracy mode applicable to Android emulators?
We are looking for High Accuracy mode for Android Emulators. We have a application which has Geofence feature. When we are launching Android 7+ emulators we are getting popups to enable Location service which are already enabled. When we switch the location mode from Device mode to High Accuracy (WiFi mode) we don't get those popups.
We are able to reproduce the error in local emulators as well.
Can you email me a screenshot of the popup at firstname.lastname@example.org. Are you looking for an Appium capability to start the device in "High Accuracy" mode? Have you considered automatically handling the popups in your Appium script?
