Hi all.

I created a class based on Erel Location example. It works fine but today I got an error
LocManager_LocationError The operation couldn’t be completed. (kCLErrorDomain error 1.)

Permission dialog appeared and permission was granted. I'm using iPhone 7 with iOS 16.

Despite this error Lat / Long are correct and it only happens once.

I don't quite undertand what domain this error is talking about?
Here is a code of my class

B4X:
Sub Class_Globals
    Public LocManager As LocationManager
    Public strHeading As String,blnEnable As Boolean
    Public strAltitude As String,strBearing As String,strLL As String
    Public strSpeed  As String,strTime As String,strAccuracy As String
    Public Latitude As Double,Longitude As Double
End Sub

'Initializes the object. You can add parameters to this method if needed.
Public Sub Initialize
 
'    If LocManager.IsAuthorized=False Then
        LocManager.Initialize("LocManager")
'    End If
 
End Sub


public Sub LocManager_AuthorizationStatusChanged (Status As Int)
 
    Try
    
        If LocManager.AuthorizationStatus = LocManager.AUTHORIZATION_DENIED Then
            Log("AUTHORIZATION_DENIED")
            blnEnable=False
        Else if LocManager.AuthorizationStatus = LocManager.AUTHORIZATION_RESTRICTED Then
            Log("AUTHORIZATION_RESTRICTED")
            blnEnable=False
        Else   
            blnEnable=True
        End If
    
        Main.IsGPSOk=blnEnable
    
        StartLocationUpdates
 
    Catch
        Log("LocManager_AuthorizationStatusChanged " & LastException.description)
        Main.modFun.ShowError("clsGPS_LocManager_AuthorizationStatusChanged " & LastException.description)
    End Try
 
End Sub


public Sub StartLocationUpdates
 
    Try
    
        'if the user allowed us to use the location service or if we never asked the user before then we call LocationManager.Start.
        If LocManager.IsAuthorized Or LocManager.AuthorizationStatus = LocManager.AUTHORIZATION_NOT_DETERMINED Then
            LocManager.Start(0)
        
        End If
        LocManager.StartHeading

That's exactly like in your example https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/location-gps.46148/

B4X:
Private Sub LocManager_AuthorizationStatusChanged (Status As Int)
    lblEnable.Visible = (LocManager.AuthorizationStatus = LocManager.AUTHORIZATION_DENIED _
        Or LocManager.AuthorizationStatus = LocManager.AUTHORIZATION_RESTRICTED)
    StartLocationUpdates
End Sub

Private Sub StartLocationUpdates
    'if the user allowed us to use the location service or if we never asked the user before then we call LocationManager.Start.
    If LocManager.IsAuthorized Or LocManager.AuthorizationStatus = LocManager.AUTHORIZATION_NOT_DETERMINED Then
        LocManager.Start(0)
    End If
    LocManager.StartHeading
End Sub

You are correct. It is fine as there is another check in StartLocationUpdates.

I guess that this is the expected behavior. It fails to get the location because you don't have permission yet and then it shows the dialog.
I'm also getting this error even if the permission granted. If I on the screen where I need a GPS but want to check my emails so I put the application into background mode and after in about 10 seconds I'm getting this error - I see it in the log. Here is a small project attached.

Please see my log
