    Geolocation API on X3-02 (v5.65) has some problems

    Hi,

    I was playing with the Geolocation API on my X3-02 (firmware v 05.65 and Nokia Browser 1.5.0.34.13) and it is not working. I am basing my code on the example here: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...eolocation_API, which works fine in the simulator.

    On my phone though it goes into the geoSuccess function, but has no coords property. Instead it was a failure code and message with the message stating: "Location information is unavailable" and a code of "2".

    Firstly, this should be considered a failure and not a success. If it goes to the geoSuccess function callback then it should have a coord property I can use and not an error message.

    Secondly, why doesn't it work? Is it my phone's firmware version causing issues?

    Minor update: tested on an X2-01 and it had the same issues. Is the geolocation method with cell towers using a service with a limited database so my current location is not represented?

    Thanks,
    Stephen

    Hi,

    I tested with two X3-02 devices, which both have been working before, and now I only get the same message as you do.
    So most probably the bug is not tied to FW version.

    Thank you for reporting this behavior. I'll forward your findings to RnD with urgency.
