Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 13:49:02 GMT
Martin Ambrus created CB-1603:

             Summary: Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)
                 Key: CB-1603
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: iOS
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
         Environment: iPhone 5, iOS 6
            Reporter: Martin Ambrus
            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah
            Priority: Critical

Applications targeted for iPhone (iOS 4.2+) using Cordova 2.0 and developed in XCode 4.5 automatically
turn on Compass / Geolocation. User is never asked if they want to reveal their location to
the app, so it's probably the Compass plugin kicking in.

What we see is the compass arrow on the right-hand top side of iPhone screen (status bar).
When the application closes, arrow disappears.

This is an issue for us, as it drains considerably more battery than version running on iOS
5.1, where this problem does not exist.

We have tried to remove all - Location, Compass and GeoLocation plugins from the Cordova.plist
to no avail.
