Hello All,

Do any of you guys know how I can force geotag on the photos taken using the camera pluging?

Thank you,
Vitor Rosario

Hello, Vítor,

Looking at the plugin's documentation, it's only supported on iOS and the way to do it is to add a preference to the plugin itself, called "CameraUsesGeolocation", with a value of "True":

 <other plugin preferences>
 "preferences": {
  "ios": [{
    "name": "CameraUsesGeolocation",
    "value": "True"

Could you test it and see if it worked for you?

Best regards,

Carlos Simões

On a side-note: you can also add it to your app, to avoid modifying your plugin and losing upgrade capabilities.

Best regards,
