Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-509) geolocation.clearWatch doesn't shut the GPS down under iOS
Date Sat, 14 Apr 2012 01:55:18 GMT

Filip Maj commented on CB-509:
------------------------------

Related to this, I'm planning on landing a W3C-compliant rewrite of geolocation in cordova
in 1.7 (tracked in CB-359). Includes a native iOS component. I would like to make sure that
when I merge that in next week this bug is also covered.

> Calling navigator.geolocation.clearWatch doesn't shut the GPS down.
> 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
versions.
> 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.
