    I don't need coordinate. My question is why on the browser I can see current location and with the webview no?
    A couple of week ago I did it, now is not possible. If I click on the icon to move blue dot on the actual position I get error

    Is not necessary post a project. Put a webview in a new project and write
    Webview show the map. If click on the circle that move the map in your location it doesn't work.

    Try this

    Sub Globals
    'These global variables will be redeclared each time the activity is created.
        'These variables can only be accessed from this module.
        Dim WebView1 As WebView

    Dim WebViewExtras1 As WebViewExtras
    Dim WebViewSetting1 As WebViewSettings
    Dim spinner1 As Spinner
    End Sub

    Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    'Do not forget to load the layout file created with the visual designer. For example:
    '   WebViewSetting1.setDOMStorageEnabled(WebView1, True)
    Log("DefaultWebViewDatabasePath: "&WebViewSetting1.getDatabasePath(WebView1))
    '   the WebView will fail to create any databases if the database path is NOT set
        WebViewSetting1.setDatabasePath(WebView1, "")
    Log("NewWebViewDatabasePath: "&WebViewSetting1.getDatabasePath(WebView1))
    Activity.AddView(WebView1, 00100%x100%y)
    'Dim DefaultWebChromeClient1 As DefaultWebChromeClient
    ' Need Runtimepermissions and the permission must be granted
    Wait For Activity_PermissionResult (Permission As String, Result As Boolean)
    If Result = False Then
    ToastMessageShow("No Location permission!"True)
    End If

    End Sub
    Sub WWW_OverrideUrl (Url As StringAs Boolean
    End Sub

    Sub WWW_PageFinished (Url As String)

    End Sub
    Sub GetVarFromWebview(WebVar As String)
    End Sub
    Sub WWW_UserAndPasswordRequired (Host As String, Realm As StringAs String()
    End Sub
    Sub Chrome_GeolocationPermissionsRequest As Int
    ' Return 1 (allowed)
        Return 1
    End Sub
    Sub Chrome_ProgressChanged(NewProgress As Int)
    End Sub
    Sub Chrome_ProgressChanged2(wv As WebView, NewProgress As Int)
    End Sub

    I expect you are using targetsdk 26 so you have to adapt your app to follow the rules. In this case; Requesting permission using runtimepermissions library.
    See my last answer for a working solution (at least for me). I am using a webchromeclient here as the webview itself uses an old android api.

    Don, your example work!!!
    Yes I use sdk26 and all the permission rules but with the simple webview I had that problem.
    Your solution is great. Now I analyze your code in order to understand how use webviewextra and ChromeClient
