Best way of determining geographical user location?
I am working on an application in Sencha Touch 2.0.0 that works with Google Maps and PhoneGap. Now I want to determine the location of the user. The only thing I need is a latitude and a longitude.
However, there are so many ways of doing this that I am overwhelmed by the choice and don't know what method to choose and what the trade-offs are.
1. Use PhoneGap's Cocoa API
3. Use the Google Maps location API.
Which of these methods delivers the best user experience, and is there a preferred way of doing it in Sencha Touch 2.0.0?

HTML5 has it's spec that we use for Ext.util.GeoLocation. This returns several things but most notable is the lat/long coordsMitchell Simoens @LikelyMitch
