I reported earlier that Android Studio verified that Expo is not receiving the Android emulated geo-location in Expo.Location not picking up Android emulator geolocation
And have confirmed it also is not returning anything in Genymotion.
Expo 29 Latest as of this post update
In both examples I ran any Samsung or Google device with Android 8.0 and up.
This is the method that is essentially blocking the thread here.
let location = await Location.getCurrentPositionAsync();
Just hangs, nothing comes back.
Live devices are obviously working so that’s great, but my app relies on geolocation and therefore is untestable on Android emulators because of this thread blocking.
I could refactor the code but if the device simply can’t talk to the geolocation API, then their app is useless. I do handle the instance of bad coordinates or no coordinate data. But that assumes recovery.
