Try using the "hello cordova" test app to experiment with geolocation. It rarely works the way you think it should work and is very dependent on the device you are using, the geolocation settings on that device, and geo permissions. Build the "hello cordova" app and install it on several different devices and you'll see what I mean.

Also, geo fine (versus coarse) might not work on some devices because of the following reasons:

  1. Your device does not have a GPS chip
  2. It is taking a long time to get a GPS lock (if you are indoors)
  3. The GPS on your device has been disabled in the mobile device settings

Geo coarse is the safest bet to quickly get an initial reading. It will get a reading based on a variety of inputs, but is usually not as accurate as geo fine but generally accurate enough to know what town you are located in and your approximate location in that town. Geo coarse will also prime the geo cache so there is something to read when you try to get a geo fine reading. Ensure your code can handle situations where you might not be getting any geo data as there is no guarantee you'll be able to get a geo fine reading at all or in a reasonable period of time. Success with geo fine is highly dependent on a lot of parameters that are typically outside of your control.

I have an Android 6 device and that geo plugin works just fine on it. Use the 'hello cordova' app for experimentation.
