Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)

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

@Martin, thanks for answering all questions timely!

Seems I can't repro the previous behaviour of compass icon not disappearing until page navigation.
 Perhaps I had a running location watch somehow (maybe a bug in mobilespec somewhere?)..

Anyway, I'm using the tip of tree, I'll try with the 2.1 release to see if I can repro there.
 Either the issue has been fixed somehow, or we Martin is doing something unique that neither
of us have been able to reproduce.  I'll report back soon, but in the mean time Martin, can
you try to make a simple reproducible test case outside of your app, and attach it to this
bug?

> Applications targeted for iPhone (iOS 4.3+) using Cordova 2.1 and developed in XCode
4.5 automatically turn on Compass / Geolocation. This is true only for devices that have iOS
6 installed. 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.
