I have made an app now that only uses WebWorks and both getCurrentPosition and watchPosition work for me. I have tried it when going home and it did take about five minutes to get a fix (I don't have a SIM card in my DevAlpha so no AGPS is available).
Are you trying it outside? Do other GPS apps work for you?

I go to bed early so I can start early (so play while I'm not around)
My bloke came thru
Are you defining the right permissions in the config xml?
Off the top of my head I remember two needed (access location services and geolocatio
I'll go freeze my feet early in the AM using the new permissions
I can't tell you exactly what they are but I'll check with my mate again before bed
I imagine he's doing 'normal things' right now so should have the answer one way or the other sometime tomorrow

You can see an example using geolocation from our test app here:
If you haven't checked make sure that location services are enabled in the settings->location services, and also that you have the proper config.xml permission.

i will have a look at the code sample you provided, thanks.
BTW, please take into account the following bullets:
- Config.xml has "read_geolocation" specified
- location services are enabled
- Everything works and the callback is received on the VMWare simulator, but as soon as I switch to the real device (DEV Alpha), I always get a timeout..no callback
- The same code used to be working on early November (sorry, i do not remember the sdk version, but it was before Gold Release)
Thanks a lot

A short update: I used the provided code, fine with VMWare simulator, no way with Dev Alpha device..at this point, I guess it is a hardware issue..
The error I received from getCurrentPosition call is the following JSON:

yes I am, location services are enabled and my app is listed under Gps permissions..in any case, my config.xml is the following:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

the latest, annoying update :-)
I finally managed to get it working..it is simply due to my position..nearby the office (inside/outside) I have no callback, About 500m far away the response time is quite fast (2,3 seconds)..
The only thing I can do is crossing fingers until more performant upcoming devices :-)
Thanks to everyone
