Here is the class LocationFinder to find the GPS location. This class will call MyLocation, which will do the business.

LocationFinder

public class LocationFinder extends Activity {

    int increment = 4;
    MyLocation myLocation = new MyLocation();

    // private ProgressDialog dialog;

    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.intermediat);
        myLocation.getLocation(getApplicationContext(), locationResult);

        boolean r = myLocation.getLocation(getApplicationContext(),
            locationResult);

        startActivity(new Intent(LocationFinder.this,
        // Nearbyhotelfinder.class));
            GPSMyListView.class));
        finish();
    }

    public LocationResult locationResult = new LocationResult() {

        @Override
        public void gotLocation(Location location) {
            // TODO Auto-generated method stub
            double Longitude = location.getLongitude();
            double Latitude = location.getLatitude();

            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), "Got Location",
                Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

            try {
                SharedPreferences locationpref = getApplication()
                    .getSharedPreferences("location", MODE_WORLD_READABLE);
                SharedPreferences.Editor prefsEditor = locationpref.edit();
                prefsEditor.putString("Longitude", Longitude + "");
                prefsEditor.putString("Latitude", Latitude + "");
                prefsEditor.commit();
                System.out.println("SHARE PREFERENCE ME PUT KAR DIYA.");
            } catch (Exception e) {
                // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                e.printStackTrace();
            }
        }
    };

    // handler for the background updating

}

MyLocation

public class MyLocation {

    Timer timer1;
    LocationManager lm;
    LocationResult locationResult;
    boolean gps_enabled=false;
    boolean network_enabled=false;

    public boolean getLocation(Context context, LocationResult result)
    {
        //I use LocationResult callback class to pass location value from MyLocation to user code.
        locationResult=result;
        if(lm==null)
            lm = (LocationManager) context.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);

        //exceptions will be thrown if provider is not permitted.
        try{gps_enabled=lm.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);}catch(Exception ex){}
        try{network_enabled=lm.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER);}catch(Exception ex){}

        //Toast.makeText(context, gps_enabled+" "+network_enabled,     Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

        //don't start listeners if no provider is enabled
        if(!gps_enabled && !network_enabled)
            return false;

        if(gps_enabled)
            lm.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER, 0, 0, locationListenerGps);
        if(network_enabled)
            lm.requestLocationUpdates(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER, 0, 0, locationListenerNetwork);
        timer1=new Timer();


        timer1.schedule(new GetLastLocation(), 10000);
    //    Toast.makeText(context, " Yaha Tak AAya", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
        return true;
    }

    LocationListener locationListenerGps = new LocationListener() {
        public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
            timer1.cancel();
            locationResult.gotLocation(location);
            lm.removeUpdates(this);
            lm.removeUpdates(locationListenerNetwork);
        }

With google things changes very often: non of the previous answers worked for me.

based on this google training here is how you do it using

fused location provider

this requires Set Up Google Play Services

Activity class

public class GPSTrackerActivity extends AppCompatActivity implements
    GoogleApiClient.ConnectionCallbacks,     
 GoogleApiClient.OnConnectionFailedListener {

private GoogleApiClient mGoogleApiClient;
Location mLastLocation;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);

    if (mGoogleApiClient == null) {
        mGoogleApiClient = new GoogleApiClient.Builder(this)
                .addConnectionCallbacks(this)
                .addOnConnectionFailedListener(this)
                .addApi(LocationServices.API)
                .build();
    }

}

protected void onStart() {
    mGoogleApiClient.connect();
    super.onStart();
}

protected void onStop() {
    mGoogleApiClient.disconnect();
    super.onStop();
}

@Override
public void onConnected(Bundle bundle) {
    try {

        mLastLocation = LocationServices.FusedLocationApi.getLastLocation(
                mGoogleApiClient);
        if (mLastLocation != null) {
            Intent intent = new Intent();
            intent.putExtra("Longitude", mLastLocation.getLongitude());
            intent.putExtra("Latitude", mLastLocation.getLatitude());
            setResult(1,intent);
            finish();

        }
    } catch (SecurityException e) {

    }

}

@Override
public void onConnectionSuspended(int i) {

}

@Override
public void onConnectionFailed(ConnectionResult connectionResult) {

}
}

usage

in you activity

 Intent intent = new Intent(context, GPSTrackerActivity.class);
    startActivityForResult(intent,1);

And this method

 protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
    super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
    if(requestCode == 1){
        Bundle extras = data.getExtras();
        Double longitude = extras.getDouble("Longitude");
        Double latitude = extras.getDouble("Latitude");
    }
}

you can got Current latlng using this

`

  public class MainActivity extends ActionBarActivity {
  private LocationManager locationManager;
  private String provider;
  private MyLocationListener mylistener;
  private Criteria criteria;
@TargetApi(Build.VERSION_CODES.HONEYCOMB)
@SuppressLint("NewApi")
@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);


             locationManager = (LocationManager) getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
              // Define the criteria how to select the location provider
              criteria = new Criteria();
              criteria.setAccuracy(Criteria.ACCURACY_COARSE);   //default

              // user defines the criteria

              criteria.setCostAllowed(false); 
              // get the best provider depending on the criteria
              provider = locationManager.getBestProvider(criteria, false);

              // the last known location of this provider
              Location location = locationManager.getLastKnownLocation(provider);

              mylistener = new MyLocationListener();

              if (location != null) {
                  mylistener.onLocationChanged(location);
              } else {
                  // leads to the settings because there is no last known location
                  Intent intent = new Intent(Settings.ACTION_LOCATION_SOURCE_SETTINGS);
                  startActivity(intent);
              }
              // location updates: at least 1 meter and 200millsecs change
              locationManager.requestLocationUpdates(provider, 200, 1, mylistener);
            String a=""+location.getLatitude();
            Toast.makeText(getApplicationContext(), a, 222).show();

}

private class MyLocationListener implements LocationListener {

      @Override
      public void onLocationChanged(Location location) {
        // Initialize the location fields



          Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this,  ""+location.getLatitude()+location.getLongitude(),
                    Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()  

      }

      @Override
      public void onStatusChanged(String provider, int status, Bundle extras) {
          Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, provider + "'s status changed to "+status +"!",
                    Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
      }

      @Override
      public void onProviderEnabled(String provider) {
          Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Provider " + provider + " enabled!",
            Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();

      }

      @Override
      public void onProviderDisabled(String provider) {
          Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Provider " + provider + " disabled!",
            Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
      }
  }

Above solutions is also correct, but some time if location is null then it crash the app or not working properly. The best way to get Latitude and Longitude of android is:

 Geocoder geocoder;
     String bestProvider;
     List<Address> user = null;
     double lat;
     double lng;

    LocationManager lm = (LocationManager) activity.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);

     Criteria criteria = new Criteria();
     bestProvider = lm.getBestProvider(criteria, false);
     Location location = lm.getLastKnownLocation(bestProvider);

     if (location == null){
         Toast.makeText(activity,"Location Not found",Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
      }else{
        geocoder = new Geocoder(activity);
        try {
            user = geocoder.getFromLocation(location.getLatitude(), location.getLongitude(), 1);
        lat=(double)user.get(0).getLatitude();
        lng=(double)user.get(0).getLongitude();
        System.out.println(" DDD lat: " +lat+",  longitude: "+lng);

        }catch (Exception e) {
                e.printStackTrace();
        }
    }

Best way is

Add permission manifest file

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION"/>

Then you can get GPS location or if GPS location is not available then this function return NETWORK location

    public static Location getLocationWithCheckNetworkAndGPS(Context mContext) {
    LocationManager lm = (LocationManager)
            mContext.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
    assert lm != null;
    isGpsEnabled = lm.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);
    isNetworkLocationEnabled = lm.isProviderEnabled(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER);

    Location networkLoacation = null, gpsLocation = null, finalLoc = null;
    if (isGpsEnabled)
        if (ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(mContext, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED && ActivityCompat.checkSelfPermission(mContext, Manifest.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {

            return null;
        }gpsLocation = lm.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER);
    if (isNetworkLocationEnabled)
        networkLoacation = lm.getLastKnownLocation(LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER);

    if (gpsLocation != null && networkLoacation != null) {

        //smaller the number more accurate result will
        if (gpsLocation.getAccuracy() > networkLoacation.getAccuracy())
            return finalLoc = networkLoacation;
        else
            return finalLoc = gpsLocation;

    } else {

        if (gpsLocation != null) {
            return finalLoc = gpsLocation;
        } else if (networkLoacation != null) {
            return finalLoc = networkLoacation;
        }
    }
    return finalLoc;
}
