getCurrentPosition not working after turning the GPS off on the device even if it turned on again?

Hi All, I found a solution to fix it.

I recognized that this issue is raised when we do not setup timeout then onError function cannot fire when GPS service is OFF. So that I did to fix

  1. Install plugin : diagnostic
    ionic plugin add cordova.plugins.diagnostic.api-22

  2. Update source code:
    if (window.cordova) {
    cordova.plugins.diagnostic.isLocationEnabled(function(enabled) {
    console.log("Location is " + (enabled ? “enabled” : “disabled”));
    if (enabled){
    navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(onSuccess, onErrore, { maximumAge: 3000, timeout: 120000, enableHighAccuracy: true})
    } else {
    //Navigator user to setting page
    }, function(error) {
    alert("The following error occurred: " + error);

  3. Go to build and check

export class HomePage {

  constructor(private geolocation: Geolocation, private platform: Platform) {}

  getLocation() {
         this.geolocation.getCurrentPosition().then((resp) => {
