It appears that if "Use Current Location" is used on a mobile phone the location is frequently not accurate. I suspect that the add-on is searching for a nearby address or the address of the cell tower is used instead of the actual position of the device in lat/lon. Is there a way for the GPS in the phone to autopopulate the starting location in lat/lon?
Today I tried two separate android phones, and an iPad, all with GPS and all with Google NAV. I had a simple webpage with the extension loaded and travelled around.
For the purposes of locating, both phones have the option (checkboxes) to "Use Wireless Networks" and/or "Use GPS Satellites". If I had both options checked, the website stated that the "current location" was an approximate nearby address, not the actual lat/lon. If I unchecked "Use Wireless Networks" the website did not return an address and the map remained blank.
It appears that its only using aGPS and 3g and not GPS...if possible, please advise on how to have the extension utilize the phone's GPS capability.
So, what you're saying is that the extension uses IPgeolocation, not gps. So, I'll ask the question slightly differently.....are you aware of a way for the extension to use the more accurate GPS in a mobile device as the "default", and if not, may I suggest that future releases of the extenstion have such capability?
