Unfortunately the other way is to just use getPosition without callbacks.
Thanks for the reply. Any idea on an eta for this? It would open up a lot of stuff for web based apps. Thanks.
This should be available in the next release (2.00.13 & 2.01.05) which is just going through QA at the moment and should be available soon.
I dont know if this was on the todo list or not but it has just been implemented! Big thanks to the devs for such a quick fix.
