you can try this

Hi there, Please use this code
if (‘android’)) {
let successCallback = (isAvailable) => { console.log('Is available? ’ + isAvailable); };
let errorCallback = (e) => console.error(e);


  this.diagnostic.isGpsLocationAvailable().then(successCallback, errorCallback);

    .then((state) => {
      if (state == this.diagnostic.locationMode.LOCATION_OFF) {
        let confirm = this.alertCtrl.create({
          title: '<b>Location</b>',
          message: 'Location information is unavaliable on this device. Go to Settings to enable Location for Untapped.',
          buttons: [

              text: 'GO TO SETTINGS',
              handler: () => {

      } else {

    }).catch(e => console.error(e));

why you use getLocationMode() because isGpsLocationAvailable() is also doing same thing? we can put below code in isGpsLocationAvailable() right? Then what is main purpose to use both of this.
