Github user stevengill commented on the issue:
    @mikepsinn pretty sure. 
    Currently, the geolocation plugin already adds the `ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION` permission.
So assuming we aren't removing that, we need to add the "android.hardware.location.gps" uses-feature.

    In this scenario, users have to remove the permission + uses feature to work with non-gps
containing devices. If we decided to remove `ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION` permission and not add
the uses-feature, then users would have to manually add those two (to their config.xml using
config-file tag, or directly to their Android manifest). 
    Seeing how we mainly target mobile devices which have GPS, it seems like it makes more
sense to add than remove. 

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
