> IOS8 Geolocation Issue
> ----------------------
>                 Key: CB-9432
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Plugin Geolocation
>         Environment: IOS 8, device and simulator
>            Reporter: Sean Molyneaux
>            Priority: Minor
> With IOS 8 request for location services, there seems to be an issue with cordova geolocation.
> What happens is: Regardless of how I have tried to approach it is that the request window
appears only when I close the app (press home).  The request message appears and very quickly
disappears making it impossible to activate.
> Further whether this is a bug on IOS 8.  The geolocation is intermittent both with watch
and get methods.
> Android works perfectly but there is something off with the IOS version.
> I am using the above plugin to track travel every 30 seconds I tested with android with
a custom ping interval using the get method but had to switch to watchPosition with a 30sec
condition loop to get iOS to barely work.
> (With above I record 30 sec intervals with webSQL)
> iOS fails about 9 out of 10 times (if I am luckly). I do notice I have to switch between
open and close (home button) to get the location icon to appear in the status bar.  But once
it disappears again I have to do the same.
> I am going to continue to test both devices as I am code blocked at the moment with any
> Mainly I am going to launch with Android but I personally would like IOS as perfectly
as android
> Please see video link for context and happy to share code if it helps.
