Hello,

I'm attempting to develop a basic app on XDK (cross platform) and all I want it to do for now is find the current user's location on the map. I'm using the basis of a map which currently is hard coded to locate to Sydney. I have tried different things such as declaring lat as position.coords.latitude and the same for longitude but any time i place them in instead of hard coding, no map even prints to the screen. Find my code below. Any help would be much appreciated.

From what I can see from the documentation at getCurrentPosition Method, you have to pass a function which accepts a parameter to the method. The parameter, naturally enough, represents the current location. Your "initialize" method doesn't do that, and therefore you can't write code which uses that location parameter.

To find the user's current location, you'll need to use the geolocation API.
