UnifiedNlp (no GAPPS)

Location provider middleware (UnifiedNlp)
README: If this app shows as installed or as updateable but you don’t
recall installing it, you should completely ignore it as it will be useless to
you and you will not be able to uninstall it nor update it. This is because the
Google version comes preinstalled in your device already.

Most modern ROMs come with support for non-Google geolocation providers. On
these systems UnifiedNlp can be installed as a user app to replace the network
location provider. It acts as a middleware for various plugins aka backends, it
does not provide any location lookup itself. For further information please
refer to the
README.

List of backends for geolocation:

* org.microg.nlp.backend.apple uses Apple’s Wifi database.
* org.fitchfamily.android.gsmlocation uses downloaded GSM Cell data (local)
* org.fitchfamily.android.wifi_backend uses (on-device generated) WiFi data (local)
* org.fitchfamily.android.dejavu uses (on-device generated) WiFi + GSM Cell data (local)
* org.microg.nlp.backend.ichnaea uses Mozilla Location Services
* org.openbmap.unifiedNlp uses Radiocells.org

List of backends for (reverse) geocoding:

* org.microg.nlp.backend.nominatim

After installing you have to reboot your device, install a backend service and
activate/configure it in the app settings. After this you can use UnifiedNlp by
activating network-based geolocation from Settings -> Location: You need to
select any mode but "device only".

NOTE: If you need to use UnifiedNlp beside GAPPS, you should instead install
org.microg.nlp.
