it just keeps saying wrong cordinates

i did the override of handle message

public class GeolocationService extends Service {
    int mLatitude;
    int mLongitude;

    // some methods omitted

    public IBinder onBind(Intent intent) {
      return null;

  public class LocationHandler{

    public void handleMessage(Message msg) {
      mLatitude = (int) getLatitude();
      mLongitude = (int) getLongitude();
