Could you please be a bit more specific about what exactly you need to know?

The only geolocation-related method, available in Ranorex, is described here:

It sends mocked GPS data to tested application, in other words, it sends fake GPS data. So with this method you can "fool" the AUT to think that the device is at different geolocation than it physically is ;)
