Start geolocation poller

  • Dark
  • PDF

Start polling for device GPS location. Latest location is stored under sensorVars.geolocation.latestValue, with sensorVars.geolocation.values having a list of historical readings. You can define the maximum size of this list with the History size parameter.

The first output is triggered after the poller has started and the first value has been successfully fetched.

Note that the update interval value is treated by iOS and Android more as a recommendation than an exact value.
