Geolocation GetPositionAsync never returns RRS feed

  • Question

  • User987 posted

    Consider the following code

    var loc = new Geolocator(this) { DesiredAccuracy = 50 }; var pos = await loc.GetPositionAsync(timeout: 4000);

    The await-code never returns. I have the correct permissions set and the location services is enabled on the phone. From looking at the code, I would expect it to return even with an invalid value.

    Also, checking the LocationStatus hangs the Geolocator.

    Any hints on what I'm doing wrong?

    Try rebooting the device and trying again. If it works after rebooting, then this is likely your issue.
