Getting the current GPS positioning of a device

Is it possible via an API to get a relatively accurate positioning via a Webbrowser? I bumped into some APIs claiming they can do that, though I don’t understand how they would achieve this, apparently even a few free python scripts can do this. Does anyone have experience with this? Knowing the city would not be enough, but the street or area would be sufficient level of precision.

Second (related) question: am I right that we can’t access the GPS information of an iPhone from a Xojo App for iOS? Or does this work as well?

This is possible, I use it all the time in several of my Xojo made iOS apps.

I can’t help you with the browser question but check out MobileLocation (formerly iOSLocation) for your second question.
