android callback fails in fragment fails cannot be cast to android.content.Context

I have a callback class gaGPS which requires I think is a context which works fine in a normal activity but when I use in a Fragment it fails

here is my interface class

Public class gaGPS extends Service implements LocationListener {

private final Context mContext;

// Declaring a Location Manager
protected LocationManager locationManager;

private gaGPSinterface gpsu;

public interface gaGPSinterface {
    public void locationChanged(Location newloc);
}


public gaGPS(Context c, gaGPSinterface gpsiface) {
    mCallback = gpsiface;
    //mContext = (Context) gpsiface;
    mContext = c;


    locationManager = (LocationManager) mContext.getSystemService(Context.LOCATION_SERVICE);
}

snip

I'm launching the Fragment using this FragmentActivity class

public class gaDetailsActivity extends FragmentActivity {

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.gpsfragment);

}

here is the gpsfragment.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LinearLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
android:layout_width="match_parent"
android:layout_height="match_parent"
tools:context=".gpsfragment" >
<fragment
    android:id="@+id/gpsTestFragLayout"
    android:name="id.wilsononline.gcadroid.gpsfragment"
    android:layout_width="0dp"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:layout_weight="1" />

the following is the Fragment I'm using

public class gpsfragment extends Fragment implements gaGPS.gaGPSinterface {

private gaGPS gps;

@Override
public void locationChanged(Location newloc) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub

}

@Override
public void onAttach(Activity activity) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    super.onAttach(activity);
}


@Override
public View onCreateView(LayoutInflater inflater, ViewGroup container,
        Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    // TODO Auto-generated method stub
    View rootView = inflater.inflate(R.layout.gpsdetails, container, false);
    ((TextView) rootView.findViewById(R.id.gpsText1)).setText("testing fragment");

    Context c = getActivity().getApplicationContext();

    gps = new gaGPS(c, (gaGPSinterface) getActivity());

    return rootView;
}

}

errors I'm getting are : java.lang.ClassCastException: com.test.app.gpsfragment cannot be cast to android.content.Context

public gaGPS(gaGPSinterface gpsu) {
    this.mContext = (Context) gpsu;
    this.gpsu = gpsu;
    // ...
}

Here, you're trying to cast gpsu to a Context. It's is not one; it's a Fragment. You should pass the Context and gaGPSinterface separately:

public gaGPS(Context c, gaGPSinterface gpsu) {
    this.mContext = c;
    this.gpsu = gpsu;
    // ...
}

Then, call it using .getActivity() (which returns an Activity, a subclass of Context) from the Fragment:

gps = new gaGPS(getActivity(), this);
