Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-9424) Speed is “null” with geolocation plugin on Android 5+

Anton Trutnev created CB-9424:

             Summary: Speed is “null” with geolocation plugin on Android 5+
                 Key: CB-9424
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Android, Plugin Geolocation
         Environment: Samsung Galaxy S4 (A5.0.1), Nexus 5 (A5.1.1), LG G3 Stylus D690 (A5.0.2).
            Reporter: Anton Trutnev

“Speed” value is always “null” in Android 5+. We use these:
•	Core: Cordova - 5.1.1
•	Platform: Cordova-Android 4.0.2
•	Plugin version: 1.0.1
•	Devices: Samsung Galaxy S4 (A5.0.1), Nexus 5 (A5.1.1), LG G3 Stylus D690 (A5.0.2).

After updating few of our test devices to Android 5, “Speed” value from the plugin is
always “null”. Works fine on Android 4 and iOS though. We tried both getCurrentPosition
and watchPosition – no luck. HighAccuracy is “true”.

No matter what we try, we always receive speed as “null”. We had to implement workaround
for Android 5 using getCurrentPosition (instead of perfectly working watchPosition for other
OSes), which in many times results in calculating speed for some intervals as up to 400 km/h,
while calculating more or less accurate speed overall.

Are there any permissions for Android 5 we are missing? What can we do to resolve this issue?
We’d like to use one code for all platforms as it should be, and keep using watchPosition
as it works good. Any suggestions? Is this a known issue?

On a related note: are there any known bugs/issues for Cordova with Galaxy devices in general?
