Re: [geolocation-api] Background Geolocation (#131)

I've been writing fleet management/asset tracking applications for mobile since about 2010. We moved from Android to PWA about 7 years ago. I've somewhat resigned to not having the ability to track while the application isn't in the foreground. Once a driver moves to an external turn-by-turn navigator, we can still get some background going (text-to-speech, EventSource, and Audio playback), but not geolocation.

That said, it's disappointing there still isn't a consensus for legitimate usage of background geolocation.

@Tom333Trinity I've been using Wakelock to keep screen on. Are you saying we can keep background location too? I haven't seen it been possible, but I last tried a year or two ago. Last thing I was trying was keeping a Picture-In-Picture to keep the application "alive" and semi "onscreen" while they are on the Google Maps/Waze navigator.
