IONIC

Geolocation

TUTORIALS

Nowadays, almost any device has GPS embedded and almost every app needs geolocation in any way. For example, the location of the delivery, or an app that helps you navigate your way through an unknown city.

The possibilities are endless and to make all this information available to you, some piece of technology is needed. We can make use of the geolocation API that is able to detect the user's location.

In Ionic we can use the Capacitor Geolocation Plugin that provides simple methods for getting and tracking the current position of the device using GPS, along with altitude, heading, and speed information.

We added to our Ionic templates a geolocation integration to display the user's current location with a marker on a Map. Also, the following posts explain how to use Geoloaction in Ionic Apps.
