      alert('Init ok');    
    }, function() {
      alert('Error ');     
      //handleLocationError(true, infoWindow, map.getCenter());
    },
    {enableHighAccuracy: true});
  } else {
    // Browser doesn't support Geolocation
     alert('Dont support ');   
    //handleLocationError(false, infoWindow, map.getCenter());
  }
 
  //var bgGeo = window.plugin.backgroundGeoLocation;
  var bgGeo = window.plugins.backgroundLocationServices;      
 

   if (typeof bgGeo === 'undefined') {
               alert('Plugin has not been initialized properly!', 'Error');
               //return false;
    }
           
         
   if (window.plugin.backgroundGeoLocation) {

    }

I'm guessing you're trying to use this plugin inside of the Simulate tab or in App Preview. It will only work in the Debug tab or in a built app.

Also, looking at the README and the sample app in that plugin repo it appears that the API interface is different. See the code in this sample > https://github.com/ivent/cordova-plugin-background-geolocation/blob/master/example/SampleApp/www/js/... < and notice that references are via an object named "backgroundGeoLocation" which would be inside window, not navigator.

I am speculating, I do not know that plugin and am guessing based on a very quick scan, you should take a closer look at the documentation and examples provided by the plugin developer.

Thank's for replay.

But: I build app to apk file and get alert that object not init properly.

Ok,  I'll test one more time for BackgroundGeoLocation object  ( there is so much forked plugin's :)  )

=======================

May I sound one wishes?

Background plugins for geolocations and for background task are very needed in common programming tasks - may Your team test and provide two plugins (geo and for tasks) as core plugins for XDK with testing and well know behaviour ?

For geolocation background may use this navis plugin (He builds fine w/o errors and works in Android and iOS)
