Error: Uncaught (in promise): [object PositionError] Geolocation

Hi, I am getting an error which seems to indicate that I am not catching a promise but I verified that all places I use this provider function there is a catch.

export class Location {
  constructor(public latitude?:number,
              public longitude?:number) {

export class PhoneLocation {

  getLocation() {
    return new Promise((resolve, reject)=> {
      Geolocation.getCurrentPosition({timeout: 20000, enableHighAccuracy: false})
        .then((position) => {
          resolve(new Location(position.coords.latitude, position.coords.longitude));
          (err) => {
            console.error('Could not read current location');

Any ideas?

Try dumping out the err.code and err.message
What’s the message in there?

You know what is weird I put the “–dev” option on the ionic build scripts and I haven’t seen the error since.

You are needlessly creating an extra promise.


It would possibly be an “[Violation] Only request geolocation information in response to a user gesture.”

Only the polyfill-es2015 warns about that, the error itself it’s blank, also the error handling seems to stop the propagation of the subsequent events.
