>                 Key: CB-6401
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Plugin Geolocation
>    Affects Versions: 3.4.0
>            Reporter: Riku Raisanen
> geolocation fails silently on Android  4.4.2. After hours of debugging, I finally got
it to work with the code on the dev branch for the plugin works (uses browsers geolocation
instead of native one).
> With the master branch code, for whatever reason the res/xml/config.xml doesn't add the
feature line:
>     <feature name="Geolocation"><param name="android-package" value="org.apache.cordova.geolocation.GeoBroker"
> and thus the geolocation silently fails. If I manually added the file and compiled an
APK off of that, then geolocation worked again.
> Geolocation is a very central feature of phone apps, I can't understand how an issue
like this would go unnoticed/unfixed for so long.
