Hi all,

I'm trying to get some geolocation values using html5 functions.
In fact, all appairs to be correct.

When i run the html5 file under android, i get the values only if the phone is connected to a wifi service.
The GPS services is never launched. Phone settings are GPS enable.

Does any know any way to starts ( and stop ) the GPS services ?
I found a couple of java source code that does the job, but none javascript.

Thanks in advance,
David de Argentina

Starting (and then recording) a user's GPS locations without his/her express permission (or knowledge) might be considered "an invasion of privacy" ... even illegal in some countries.

However, for other GPS related functionality, you might look to Phonegap ... some information over here

Accessing the phone's GPS will require adding some features to NeoAppBuilder itself. This is on the "to do" list and should be available soon.

Thanks Gaev & Dave,

I agree with the "an invasion of privacy" idea. I'm not interested on force free will...

I tested some webpages that -apparently- do the job, and some of those, starts the dialog "connect" "decline" the gps.

This webpages works.... but not all times... i can't say works fine...

If i could start the dialog Connect GPS or Decline, all times ( and if it works...) i would be very happy...
