I'm using Bing Maps as part of my sample app, and I keep running into an error.
Specifically, my GPS location always times out (it works in ripple, and works on the emulator, but not my device).
Is there a fix for this? I'm using the latest webworks (126.96.36.199) and I've updated my dev alpha to 10.0.9.1103.
I've connected my wifi and everything, as well as enabled location services on the phone itself. Is there a reason why the geolocation is defaulting to timeout?

I have the same issue, no errors, no exceptions.."navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosit
this occurred today morning after recent updates to latest platform..
thanks a lot

After reading this I tried my (worked recently) app out
I use Google Maps in this iteration and got various whitelisting issues
At one point I stood in the garden in the rain and managed to get as far as some wierd G URL that seemed to be a map-load URL with a funny subdomain (wish I'd written it down)
Tried whitelisting * after that (even worse)
I never even get a callback
Set it back to whitelisting googleapis and gstatic then got no further
Having said that the weather is abysmal at the moment but tomorrow its meant to be sunny so I'll try again then
I got a version on the PB but my feet are wet already so I'll play in the morning

I've checked with BB
They are aware of the GPS issue (i,e, we're not doing anything wrong)
I am assured that everything will be fine for the gold release
This means we should be able to develop as if things work properly knowing it'll all work in the upcoming release
Not the best answer we could have hoped for but it at least clarifies the situation

Geolocation works fine in my app. Just yesterday I tried it out while going home. It did take a long time though as I haven't got a SIM card inserted. I'm using Cordova in my app amd I kept the screen on all the time.

did you manage to get the geolocalization working?I just updated everything to the Gold Release and nothing happened..getCurrentPosition still never returns a callback..
Don't know what to do..
thanks a lot
