Location.Latitude and Location.Longitude iOS - must close and re-open app on 1st attempt


I am using iOS 12 with PowerApps release 3.18094.26. I am using the formula Set(CurrentLatitude,Location.Latitude) on the OnSelect action for a button. The variable, CurrentLatitude is set as the text value in a label. The issue I am experiecing is when opening the application on the first attempt, the app is requesting permission to use location services; however, the Location.Latitude remains blank. Only when I close and re-open the app is the CurrentLatitude populated with the Location.Latitude. As a work-a-round, I thought I could just use the Launch formula to re-launch the app. However, Launch doesn't seem to work when launching an app that is already open.

Any suggestions or ideas on how to handle retrieving Location.Latitude & Location.Longitude on the initial launch in iOS?

Hi, but the thing is, if I run the app on an Android device, it works good.

If I run it on an IOS device it makes commas of the dots....


So when using the iOS app player, I am assuming you are displaying the coordinates somehow, and that is where the decimal point is being replaced with a comma? Are you able to provide a screen-shot showing where the decimal point is replaced by a comma? this could help narrow down the search. Also, please confirm the number is saved with a decimal point in Share Point or not.

@jlister I don't know what happened, my last post and screenshots are not send to the forum.... 😞



I now just changed my display language on the IOS device and then it does work....

So when it is set to Dutch it changes the dot to a comma.

Any ideas where I can change this decimal setting on a IOS device 😞 ??
