The specific command to run in the console is I found this site useful for finding a realistic lat/lng: you need more then one coordinate you can use a kml file with a route as well it is a little bit described in this article. and manually determining the specific latitude and longitude coordinates.Unable to find anything, I put together a little program that uses GWT and the Google Maps API to launch a browser-based map tool to set the GPS location in the emulator: android-gps-emulator Hopefully it can be of use to help others who will undoubtedly stumble across this difficulty/question as well.
