Navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition does not fire in Android 6.0 version

Hey Ionic devs!

I faced recently a very hard issue, spent few days but no success. Getting current position in Android 6.0 is not working. I have tried navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(success, error, options) and $cordovaGeolocation.getCurrentPosition(options).then(success, error) but no options working. It is working in Android 4.x version.


Getting the exact same issue here. Two days of troubleshooting, no success. Getting the error “application does not have sufficient geolocation permissions”, even though I’ve included:

<uses-permission android:name=“android.permission.INTERNET” />
<uses-permission android:name=“android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION” />
<uses-permission android:name=“android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION” />
<uses-permission android:name=“android.permission.ACCESS_LOCATION_EXTRA_COMMANDS” />

in the AnodridManifest.xml file

I believe Android 6.0 introduces run-time permissions (rather than install-time) that have to be handled differently.

Have a look at the requestRuntimePermissions function of this plugin:
