Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-509) geolocation.clearWatch doesn't shut the GPS down under iOS
Date Tue, 17 Apr 2012 23:48:18 GMT


Filip Maj commented on CB-509:

Hey all,

Related to this, CB-359 won't land until 1.8 (since we don't want to drop new features in
1.7). Probably should remove the "depends on" to that issue in here if you still want to land
this for 1.7.

> 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.
