Steps I have followed::

After these I have installed “react-native-geolocation-service” package Link this package I have followed all the Android settings. Import in file like this:: import Geolocation from “react-native-geolocation-service”; Function where I used it::

getLocation() {
		Geolocation.getCurrentPosition(response => {
			console.log("geo response = ", response);
			if (response && response.coords) {
				console.log("geo res true");
			(error) => {
				console.log("Error geolocation");
		).catch((error) => {

There is a TypeError: cannot read property getCurrentPosition of undefined. still I am not able to get my current location?? Why this is happening? Please suggest me a solution.

Check These lines added in your

import com.agontuk.RNFusedLocation.RNFusedLocationPackage;

new RNFusedLocationPackage() in protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() method

It fixes my issue

react-native: 0.61.4 react-native-geolocation-service: 3.1.0

react-native link @react-native-community/react-native-geolocation-service resolved this issue for me.

Indeed follow the steps for 0.59 and lower if this error occurs. ‘No additional setup is required for 0.60 or above’ sounds tempting.
