LocationListener onLocationChanged

 I was wondering, does an onLocationChanged event happen when the
location device gets turned on? That is, if you're in SF, you turn off
gps, you take a plain to Amsterdam, then you turn on gps, does the
device generate an onLocationChanged event? Or does that happen when
you've changed location after turning on the gps?

LocationListener onLocationChanged

 Please allow me to ask a question related with onLocationChanged
event:

How does everybody make the mock gps provider send onLocationChanged
events automatically instead of manually by clicking on the "Send"
button in the DDMS Device Control view?

My app needs the event from the very beginning of its execution.
Manual clicking on the "Send" button cannot catch the timing of my
app.

LocationListener onLocationChanged

 If you have a location listener enabled, then it does.  I don't think
the GPS will update until something registers with the LocationManager
service, but I can't think of a way to test that hypothesis without
creating a location listener first.  An internals guru would be more
helpful there.

The behavior I notice using networks instead of GPS to test (GPS was
spotty the past few days) is a single call to onLocationChanged for
the one valid point I was using (I don't move, so I always get the
same point).  I can't imagine why it wouldn't update immediately after
being turned on (provided you need it).

1. caching TelephonyManager and other managers

I user a bunch of managers in my app, like TelephonyManager,
ConnectivityManager, LocationManager and a few more. I initialise
these in my onCreate() of my service and use them later on.
I'm wondering if this is the correct approach. Should I be
initializing each manager as I need it, or is it ok to initialise them
once at the creation of my service for later use?
Thanks for your help.
