Geolocation permission request fires twice on native builds fo iOS
in my app I use Ext.Map component, so at the first start of app on IPhone user will get a request for using location permissions. As expected this question should be asked a single time only, but it happened twice.
The first time question is "App would like to use your current location"..
and the second time something like "/var/mobile/Applications/246JF70D-4BB7-736G-870D0VHE1T/app.app/app/index.html would like to use your location"
What happened? Why this occurs?

When packaged, what are you using to get the location?

as I know, Ext.Map uses Ext.util.Geolocation

Have you already find the solution on this? I have the same problem.

Yes. You should initialize geolocation services after application DOM is created, for example you can initialize gelocation on "painted" event on Ext.Viewport.
If you use Ext.Map component (uses Ext.util.Geolocation) you should initialize this component with useCurrentLocation config option - false. Important!
Also you should listen for painted event on Ext.Viewport, when this event fires - you can enable geolocation service on Ext.Map by setting mpObj.setUseCurrentLocation(true);

Actually I just fixed mine by using Ext.device.Geolocation.getCurrentPosition()

I'm building a native ios app, and I obtain the double location permission request when using "navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition".
I've tried what you said and put the call inside the "painted" listener on my Panel... but unfortunately I still obtain the double permission request. I use the geolocation to send a GET Request along with coordinates to a server that returns a json with information that I use to fill a list.
Any idea about how to avoid this annoying prompt? I've read something about "deviceready" and phonegap, but I don't use phonegap...
I can't use Ext.device.Geolocation.getCurrentPosition because fails when it's used on natives apps on IOS.
Thank you very much.

I am also having this problem, there doesn't seem to be any way to have the location services request fire just once... really frustrating.

I think I just fixed my problem on iOs at least, I had to include the GeoLocation plugin from Cordova into my build... I think what happens is that the HTML5 device gets found if the plugin doesn't override it... you can read about it on the plugin page:
and there were helpful notes on another thread:
