Subject [GitHub] cordova-plugin-geolocation pull request: background location under...

    background location under iOS 9

    Thanks for this upgrade of the plugin !
    I just tried to run in under iOS 9, and it seems that the following lines should be added
before [self.locationManager startUpdatingLocation] : 
        locationManager.pausesLocationUpdatesAutomatically = NO;
        locationManager.allowsBackgroundLocationUpdates = YES;
    However, doing so drains the battery quickly.
    Do you have a similar experience ?
    These lines can also be useful, even not strictly necessary for the background usage :

        locationManager.activityType = CLActivityTypeFitness;
        locationManager.desiredAccuracy = kCLLocationAccuracyBestForNavigation;
        locationManager.distanceFilter = kCLDistanceFilterNone;
