Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (CB-3023) Geolocation API does not work on Motorola Xoom tablet (and perhaps/probably other devices)

In addition, the doc says:

Android Quirks 
The Android 2.x simulators will not return a geolocation result unless the enableHighAccuracy
option is set to true. 

So you're telling me I'd have to have enableHighAccuracy set to trie or false based on detecting
Android version?

> In a nutshell: the Geolocation API does not work on the Xoom tablet. The "success" callback
never gets called after getCurrentPosition() or watchPosition().
> More details... Neither the:
> - navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(onSuccess, onError, { maximumAge: 2000, timeout:
5000, enableHighAccuracy: true }) nor
> - navigator.geolocation.watchPosition(onSuccess, onError, { maximumAge: 2000, timeout:
5000, enableHighAccuracy: true })
> methods result in the "onSuccess" callback being called.
> Without the optional options ("{ maximumAge: 2000, timeout: 5000, enableHighAccuracy:
true }") included in the methods, the "onError" callback never (unless the default timeout
is several minutes, if there is a default) gets called either. With the options included,
it does, and the timeout error (error.message = "Timeout expired") is generated. Only the
onError callback gets called, never the onSuccess callback, when running on the Xoom.
> Tested on other devices (Droid3 and iPhone) and these methods work (though watchPosition
is slow on Droid3, another bug). Manifest and inspection of permissions look correct. Xoom
is able to show its location using other apps like Google Maps.
