Summary

GPS randomly does not refresh when using Location/LocationValues functions

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

12.0.6.54980

Operating system version

iOS 6.1.3 (10B329)

Description of the issue

On a random basis, execution of LocationValues function won't trigger a proper GPS location fetch (which can be visually observed) but will instantly return data from the last successful fetch even though age of value increases.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a script that calls LocationValues function on an iterative basis : script is,designed to compute an area and will therefore run over a loop prompting the user to move along locations before pressing a dialog button which triggers the LocationValues function.

Expected result

Each call to the LocationValues function should trigger a proper GPS fetch

Actual result

On a random basis iOS GPS cache data is returned instead of running a proper GPS fetch

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

Nil

Configuration information

Nil

Workaround

Trap the issue within a loop that checks whether the output of LocationValues is the same as previous and re-run. It can tale up to 15-20 times before a proper GPS fetch is performed.
