Subject [jira] [Updated] (CB-5760) Cordova 3.1 or greater Geolocation fails with "Position retrieval timed out"
Date Mon, 13 Jan 2014 11:24:11 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-5760?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

VinceRafale updated CB-5760:
----------------------------

    Description: 
Even after following steps here  http://docs.phonegap.com/en/3.1.0/cordova_geolocation_geolocation.md.html#Geolocation,
I never get a GPS fix (Error Code 3, Position retrieval timed out).

# cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.geolocation
# cordova plugin ls
    [ 'org.apache.cordova.geolocation' ]

in AndroidManifest.xml

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_LOCATION_EXTRA_COMMANDS" />


in app/res/xml/config.xml
<feature name="Geolocation">
    <param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.geolocation.GeoBroker" />
</feature>

It seems that downgrading to 2.9 does the trick.

Please note that with cordova 3.1 and higher geolocation works in genymotion (when gps enabled)
but not on a real device.

So fake positions are correctly interpreted.

Keeping the same html/js code, if the geolocation plugin is removed from the project (cordova
plugin rm org.apache.cordova.geolocation), then the app uses the webview integrated geolocation....
and then geolocation works as expected.

As a reference... other people also complain of similar issues
