Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-9474) Use fused location provider
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2015 11:52:46 GMT
Werner Beroux created CB-9474:
---------------------------------

             Summary: Use fused location provider
                 Key: CB-9474
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-9474
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Plugin Geolocation
            Reporter: Werner Beroux


On Android, WebView/Chrome uses [LocationManager|https://developer.android.com/reference/android/location/LocationManager.html]
to provide location updates (see [Chromium LocationProviderFactory.java|https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src.git/+/master/content/public/android/java/src/org/chromium/content/browser/LocationProviderFactory.java]).

This is less reliable and uses more battery than the [FusedLocationProviderApi|https://developers.google.com/android/reference/com/google/android/gms/location/FusedLocationProviderApi].

It would be good to make use of FusedLocationProviderApi when available (that is when Google
Play Services are installed).
