> It's no longer possible to manually invoke geolocation.stop() (and thus the corresponding
stopLocation function in CDVLocation), which was a temporary solution with previous phonegap/cordova
> It's quite a problem because an application using the GPS even for a short amount of
time will completely drain the battery in a few hours.
