How to get GPS location using any Microsoft tool ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I want to get silently the GPS location of the visitor of my website by email. This website would be accessed on smartphones (Windows Phone, Android, iPhone) those are equipped with high sensitivity GPS receivers.

    These are the two main objectives:

    1. The visitors should NOT get any notification about sharing their location when they visit the website using IE, Safari, Chrome.
    2. I should get the GPS location WITHOUT installing any external apps.

    I need it only for smartphones users, not for computers/laptops; and any Microsoft tool can be used for it (Silverlight/ASP.NET etc.)

  • The Building Windows Store apps with HTML5/JavaScript forum is a retired forum about writing Windows Store apps. For help using GPS in your web app you'll need to ask in a forum dedicated to web programming.

    I highly doubt there is a way to get this information silently without user permission.
