Error during Location.startLocationUpdatesAsync

  1. SDK Version: 41
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android Expo Go
  3. Add the appropriate “Tag” based on what Expo library you have a question on.

Hey,
I have updated SDK to the newest version and I started to receive error when app is calling background task using this method: Location.startLocationUpdatesAsync. All needed permissions, like: requestForegroundPermissionsAsync and requestBackgroundPermissionsAsync are called before as It mentioned in documentation.
Exception visible in console:


[Unhandled promise rejection: Error: Attempt to invoke interface method 'java.util.Map o.e.c.j.d.getOptions()' on a null object reference]

Hi there,

I have the same issue with my app with Expo Go and in Standalone mode.
It’s probably a bug so I will report it as bug in the github repo
