Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-3023) Geolocation API does not work on Motorola Xoom tablet (and perhaps/probably other devices)
Date Fri, 12 Apr 2013 16:10:17 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-3023?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13630235#comment-13630235

Jack Piccininni commented on CB-3023:
-------------------------------------

I reopened the issue yesterday because I felt your closing the issue and marking it "Resolved"
and "Won't Fix" was predicated on the idea that my changing the options to "enableHighAccuracy:
false" would fix the issue. It did NOT. I'm a paying customer, by the way. I have this bug
discussed at the PhoneGap Support site. I still think it's a bug. If you don't think an API
not working on a device is not a bug, we're not on the same page. To me, device parity is
everything with PhoneGap, its main purpose, in fact. If the Geolocation API has caveats, it
should be documented, IMHO. My two cents.

> 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.
