Geolocation not working KitchenSink

Within the KitchenSink, does the getCurrentPosition work for anyone? This method is supposed to work within the simulator, right?

  • I should have mentioned, I am talking about the iPhone simulator.

  • The location event listener won't fire. So, you won't get updates on your position. But, generally you should be able to get the one-shot location information. I'm not sure if you're doing Android or iPhone. On Android, I had to manually set the location one time, from there it's cached (forever it would seem as I haven't fiddled with it and the one-shot location data is still there after several restarts). See my answer in the big long tips thread for the way to manually set a location in the Android simulator.
