    Default Unanswered: google maps api stopped working in samsung phones

    Hi ,
    I have a webapp running for quite some time made using sencha touch 1.1 .
    I have used google map api and it was working fine on ios , android (samsung , htc) .

    Recently it has stopped working on Samsung Android phones. It is still working on HTC.

    I have used
    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.google.com/maps/api/js?sensor=true"></script>
    
    a view mapPlaces.js
    
    
    xyz.views.mapPlaces = new Ext.Map({
        layout:'card',
        id:'myMappp',
        mapOptions : {
            zoom : 12,
            panControl: false,
            streetViewControl: true,
            mapTypeId : google.maps.MapTypeId.ROADMAP,
            navigationControl: true,
            navigationControlOptions: {
                style: google.maps.NavigationControlStyle.DEFAULT
            },
            zoomControl: true,
            zoomControlOptions: {
            style: google.maps.ZoomControlStyle.SMALL
        }
       }
    });
    
    
    
    var marker = new google.maps.Marker({
                    position: new google.maps.LatLng(lat, lon), 
                    title : name, 
                    map: CardForYou.views.mapPlaces.map,
                    discount:discount,
                    icon: icon ,
                    description:description,
                    bild:bild,
                    fotos:fotos,
                    adress:adress,
                    street:street,
                    zip:zip,
                    city:city
                });
                
                markersArray.push(marker);
                
                new google.maps.event.addListener(marker, 'mousedown', function(event) {
    ....
    }
    
    and then
    
    mapOnSuccess = function(position) {
                
              myLat = position.coords.latitude;
              myLon = position.coords.longitude;
              glob_Lat = myLat;
              glob_Lon = myLon;
              
              var myPosition = new google.maps.LatLng(myLat, myLon);
              
              new google.maps.Marker({
                            position: myPosition, 
                            title : 'My location', 
                            map: xyz.views.mapPlaces.map, 
                            icon:'images/my_location.png',
                        });
              
              xyz.views.mapPlaces.update(myPosition);
              loadDataPlaces(myLat, myLon, globRange);
            };
    now it is showing default location of california in samsung phones and not asking permission to use gps. I have done activating location services, clearing cache etc.

    Update
    I tried opening http://maps.google.com/ on the same phone and there also google maps could not get the current location. I also tried http://html5demos.com/geo
    and it could also not get current position and failed.

    Is this an HTML5 problem.

    So it's a device issue and not a Sencha Touch issue if I understand correctly.
