Problem with BackgroundGeoLocation


I was normally using the plugin, but now it has stopped working, every time I run it on Android, it returns this message:

main.js:1 Native: tried calling BackgroundGeolocation.configure, but the BackgroundGeolocation plugin is not installed.
x @ main.js:1
main.js:1 Install the BackgroundGeolocation plugin: ‘ionic plugin add cordova-plugin-mauron85-background-geolocation’

The problem is that the plugin is installed, it usually appears when I type cordova plugin list.

Has anyone ever had this problem?


which plugin you using? im using cordova-plugin-geolocation version=“2.4.0” its work fine for me .Just tried to reinstall the plugin. And also check your cordova version


The problem is not in the Gelocation plugin but in the BackgroundGeolocation plugin. I am using the following versions of both plugins:

Cordova-plugin-mauron85-background-geolocation 2.2.5 “CDVBackgroundGeolocation”

Cordova-plugin-geolocation 2.4.1 “Geolocation”


why you need to use BackgroundGeolocation plugin? if you need to send the information in background mode,you can use cordovaBackground plugin


Why do I need to monitor the user’s position every minute even though the application is in the background, and the ionic 2 documentation speaks to use this plugin … but I’m going to take a look at that Background Cordova you said … If it would be to use or something like that right? In conjunction with the cordova background plugin?


im just using this plugin “” to work my app in background.
And enabled background mode like this cordova.plugins.backgroundMode.enable(); in my app.js. in my case i need to send my users location in every 5 minute so i am using watchoptions for do so
