Subject [jira] [Resolved] (CB-9474) Use fused location provider
Date Tue, 15 Mar 2016 20:29:33 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-9474?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Joe Bowser resolved CB-9474.
----------------------------
    Resolution: Won't Fix

If you want this, you should write a plugin.  We have no plans to move away from the Chromium
Geolocation Plugin.

>                 Key: CB-9474
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-9474
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          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).
