this may be because you are not actually passing your Android app your current location even though location is on, this can be done with the .setLocation() method
I am building Android app with wikitude 6.1. I am storing my js,html and all relevant files on remote server for "poi at location" and trying to load them from Android studio using URL link. When i run my app, it shows trying to find where you are, whereas when i launch my app using Wikitude app (Launch via URL), it is showing '1 place loaded'. Why its not updating location and showing "1 place loaded" on my app instead of Wikitude world browser.
