    If you want to track the location using phonegap App, you can simply checkout this steps.

    1. After creating a project for example "test", you can add a plugin using terminal

    cordova plugin add org.apache.cordova.geolocation

    After installing the plugin make sure your plugin is installed by using:

    cordova plugin ls

    It will show you something like this:

    [ 'org.apache.cordova.geolocation' ]

    After the confirmation of adding plugin, open your www folder and add the following lines in your code:
    HTML :

        <div id="findLocation"></div>

    JS :

        document.addEventListener("deviceready", onDeviceReady, false);
            function onDeviceReady() {
                navigator.geolocation.getCurrentPosition(onSuccess, onError);
     // On device feady it will call this function
            function onSuccess(position) {
                var div = document.getElementById('findLocation');
                div.innerHTML = 'Latitude: '             + position.coords.latitude         + '<br/>' +
                                'Longitude: '            + position.coords.longitude        + '<br/>' +
                                'Altitude: '             + position.coords.altitude         + '<br/>'';
            function onError() {

    It will give the Lattitude and Longitude of your location on device ready.
    You can also get your location on click of some button or on any event.
