Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:54:03 GMT


Michal Mocny commented on CB-1603:

Interestingly, if I change EnableLocation to YES in plist, then the compass starts to disappear
after 10 seconds even without a page change, which is what I would expect.  However, it also
seems to show the compass on application start for 10 seconds.

Seems you are seeing a combination of these two issues: compass shows up on application start,
but never disappears.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>         Environment: iPhone 5, iOS 6
>            Reporter: Martin Ambrus

>            Priority: Critical
>              Labels: geolocation, location
> Applications targeted for iPhone (iOS 4.2+) using Cordova 2.0 and developed in XCode
4.5 automatically turn on Compass / Geolocation. User is never asked if they want to reveal
their location to the app, so it's probably the Compass plugin kicking in.
> What we see is the compass arrow on the right-hand top side of iPhone screen (status
bar). When the application closes, arrow disappears.
> This is an issue for us, as it drains considerably more battery than version running
on iOS 5.1, where this problem does not exist.
> We have tried to remove all - Location, Compass and GeoLocation plugins from the Cordova.plist
to no avail.
