Cordova – startRequiringUserInterventionForLocationServicesCallback

 *  Provide a callback to be notified when user intervention is required for Location Services on the device.
 *  The callback provides an integer for current Location Service authorization status.
exports.startRequiringUserInterventionForLocationServicesCallback = function( callback )
    exec( callback, null, "BDPointSDK", "startRequiringUserInterventionForLocationServicesCallback", [] );


This callback allows your app to be notified if user intervention is required as Location Services are not currently enabled on the device; your app will not be able to trigger any fences if Location Services has not been enabled.


callback (Function)

This is a function that will be called when Location Services is currently not active on the mobile device.
