Hello all,

I have a question regarding storing new feature (point in my case) in android application. There is a nice example of adding new feature to the map. It is simple to store this feature to the layer hosted by ArcGIS Server using applyEdits method. In my case I do not need the map, because I would like to store a new feature at my current GPS location, so basically all I need is a button which executes reading of my current GPS position and adding/storing a new point feature at my location.
Is it possible to achieve this as long as I do not want to show/use the map?

Thank you for your help in advance.

Kind Regards
