I test example from github android/location-samples/LocationAddress. On physical smartphone it works great but on emulator not. I test both emulator map or telnet 5554. Do you have similar problem on this example?

I haven't any app to test for but found out the following procedure how to set the location.

First I start an emulator. My emulator version is 30.7.5-7491168. Seen from "extended controls->about". Extended controls can be reached from emulator main window clicking on three dots.

Through "extended controls" it seams that one is able to set the location or some route too. I did not explored that.

In command line I started 'adb' tool.

Then one can get a list of devices:

From output above connect to the device via telnet:

The friendly client already told the location of the token in $HOME directory (I am using Linux, but this should work in similar manner on Windows or mac too):

Only after authentication  'help' shows the full list of available commands. Help about location-related functions provides 'help geo', or 'help geo fix'.

Last not least set the location to some place on globe:
