Passes the device's current position. When called, it returns the initial Position object, which describes the device's current location.

If the attempt is successful, the successCallback method is called periodically, depending on the settings defined in the options parameter, with a new Position object. If the attempt fails, the errorCallback method is invoked with a new PositionError object, reflecting the reason for the failure.


navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(successCallback, errorCallback, options)


The method returns and then asynchronously attempts to obtain the current location of the device.
