Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 20:46:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13472731#comment-13472731

Michal Mocny commented on CB-1603:
----------------------------------

I've not yet been able to duplicate this, but I would like to point out that on an ios6 device
(ipad3) when I run the Location tests, I get the compass icon as soon as I ask for location,
and the icon never goes away.  There is a pair of "start/stop" watching locations buttons,
but the compass persists even when the tests claim location tracking is off (webview issue?
cordova issue?).

Investigating.

>             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.
