Thanks

The reason you're using all of the memory is because you keep adding listeners via watchposition. You only need to call that function once to set the success and error listeners. Every time you call StartTracking you add another set of event listeners. That takes memory, you're making an enormous call stack to run when the position changes. If you call StartTracking 1000 times, then you're registering 1000 sets of event listeners and when the position changes it's going to call the success function 1000 times. If you want to check the current position then use getCurrentPosition. I suspect that's probably related to the post issue but I'm not going to test that because, no offense, but you don't need my latitude and longitude. I have that disabled for a reason.
