Geolocation Service not working consistently

Post by JimmyH »

Hi there,

I use the default device geolocation service and only get a success some of the time. I have not changed any of the service options.

Situation:
It works all of the time on the browser
Works some of the time on one mobile device (android)
Works none of the time on a second mobile device (android)

Can you please advise how I can fix this issue.

Thanks
James

Hi Hero, Sorry but I'm not sure how I can share the app with you as there are login requirements etc (due to an earlier version being on the app stores).

I would be happy to test your app if that helps.

Hello James,

Could you please clarify a few questions:
Have you changed anything on the Source tab?
What Appery.io libraries version and plugins versions you are using in your app?
And what are Android versions of your devices?

Hi Evgene,

Sorry about the slow response.

library: V4.0
Android: 5.1 and 6.0.1

The only changes to the source tab have been for a couple of icons. This works fine.

Thanks
James

Hello Jimmy,

The fact that there are no issues when you are working in the browser indicates that there is the highest probability of some problems (inconsistencies) with some of the Android library(ies).
Please make sure you use the last version of the plugins in your app, if you use libraries version 4.0 there.
Also, the source changes may be causing such misbehavior.

Hi Galyna,

As you can see (previous post) I am using the most current library and was using the most recent cordova geolocation plugin.

but the problem still occurs.
