iOS: geolocation is active when there are no listeners attached


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Resolution: Cannot Reproduce
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Titanium SDK & CLI
    • Labels:
    • Environment:

      iPhone 4, iOS 6.1.3, SDK 3.1.1.v20130516183044 and SDK 3.1.0.GA


      Problem description
      Geolocation icon ("arrow") is visible in iPhone status bar, but there are no listeners attached to Ti.Geolocation. Location services seems to be active and consuming battery. The icon disappears only after uninstalling the app. Killing it is useless.

      Also, in console log there is a line:

      May 24 21:56:22 Ilya-Shapovalovs-iPhone locationd[46] <Notice>: Location icon should now be in state 'Active'

      And there should be line with "Location icon should now be in state 'Inactive'", but there isn't.

      This problem was encountered by end users of the app at first (so, it covers different versions of iOS and different iPhone models).

      Steps to reproduce
      1. create new project - titanium - single window application
      2. Insert following code in app.js or ApplicationWindow.js:

      var win = Ti.UI.createWindow({
      	backgroundColor : "#FFF"
      //Ti.Geolocation.trackSignificantLocationChange = true; - tried this one also. In log there is a couple of "cb", a couple of "timeout" but the rest of the log is same (it's provided below)
      Ti.Geolocation.accuracy = Ti.Geolocation.ACCURACY_LOW;
      var cb = function() {
      	if (false) { // immediate removal of listener does not solve my issue, either
      		Ti.Geolocation.removeEventListener('location', cb);
      	} else {
      		setTimeout(function() {
      			Ti.Geolocation.removeEventListener('location', cb);
      		}, 3000);
      Ti.Geolocation.addEventListener('location', cb);
