Http post request inside a GPS Listener...initiated by a Service

I'm doing an app in which a Service initiates a GPSListener which gets location updates in a regular interval of time.Upto this part its woking fine,and Im getting updates correctly.

I need to update this lat,long values to a server database,for which I use a http post request to a php script;which individually works fien.But when its called inside the LocationListener,Im getting the following error stacktrace.

How can I overcome this situation and make the post request?

you are doing network operation on main(UI) thread. do use asyntask for network operation. android does not allow to perform network operation on main thread. because it may freezes the UI.

whenever this exception occur android.os.NetworkOnMainThreadException its mean you have done something network operation on UI.

Even though Service is intended for background processing they run in the main thread .

A short quote from the documentation:

Caution: A services runs in the same process as the application in which 
it is declared and in the main thread of that application, by default. So, 
if your service performs intensive or blocking operations while the user 
interacts with an activity from the same application, the service will 
slow down activity performance. To avoid impacting application performance, 
you should start a new thread inside the service.
