I uninstall v190 -> reinstall v184 -> modify the project file that it opens... -> save the project -> export the project -> Intel XDK crosswalk wrapping & build -> the geolocation works again on my two Android 4.1 device

U can find the full app from ... .keha4.LoH - as you can see this is not the project I posted earlier but this is the application which stop working during version update.

Closing as not a bug, simply increase the timeout parameter if it times out so it has more time to find the location. Verified it works with a longer timeout in Chrome for Android on a HTC Sensation running Android 4.0.

We have not changed the Geolocation plugin since mid-2013, so I doubt r190 affected this.
