Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12308) Unable to get gps position
Date Wed, 01 Mar 2017 06:00:50 GMT


Alexander Sorokin commented on CB-12308:

I saw some other people experiencing the same issue.
Geolocation plugin relies on `navigator.geolocation` Web API on Android and this seems to
be the issue with this API.

I wonder if it's a good idea for us to implement geolocation via Java code, as it is done
in above mentioned cordova-plugin-mauron85-background-geolocation.

> Hello,
> on my Android mobile phone, a Meizu M3s Android 5.1, gps plugin doesn't work very well.
> I have developed a basic app with just the gps plugin and a button to get the current
gps position. I run it, and when I push the button to get current position, I get the 'on
error' callback with timeout error.
> Of course, the app has access to gps and global gps setting is on.
> If I turn the mobile off and on, then the app works and I get the position. But, if I
put the mobile in stand-by and I leave it for a while (10 minutes for example), then the app
stops working and and gps requests expire per timeout.
> Enableaccuracy, timeout and age options doesn't affect the bug. I experience the same
problem, even if a try to reduce or to increase timeout and age, or set EnableAccuracy true
or false.
> Thanks for your attention.
> Regards, plco.
> P.S. Later, I have added the cordova-plugin-mauron85-background-geolocation plugin and
while the cordova gps plugin still expires per timeout, this one manages to get the current
gps position.
