Capture GPS coordinates on mobile devices

The Where am I button on Mobile.aspx doesn’t work on some Android devices. The problem are delays in retrieving GPS coordinates. To solve this problem increase the timeout. The same code works on iOS devices.

Source code

var timeout = 5000000;  
if (navigator.geolocation) {
         function (position) {
            alert(position.coords.latitude, position.coords.longitude);
         function (error) {
         }, {
            enableHighAccuracy: true
            , timeout: timeout
} else {
   alert("no support for geolocation");
