Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/535.11 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/17.0.963.12 Safari/535.11

Steps to reproduce:

Terminal: Google Samsung Galaxy Nexus with Android Sandwich

In Firefox Mobile, go to http://html5demos.com/geo.
In Native Browser, go to http://html5demos.com/geo.


Actual results:

In Firefox Mobile:
If the GPS-D (normal GPS) has acquired the minimun number of satellites (4), it works. In other case it fails.

In Native Browser: It works without the acquistion of number of satellites (without GPS-D). It is supposed that GPS-A is used.


Expected results:

The same behaviour of Native Browser is expected.

I cannot find the exact line in the code but it is related with the usage of LocationManager.GPS_PROVIDER (LocationManager.NETWORK_PROVIDER should be added).
