I set the Android manifest for location permissions.
I added the following to OnCreate in myAcivity in Android

         ` protected override void OnCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState)
        Bundle abundle = new Bundle();
        Plugin.CurrentActivity.CrossCurrentActivity.Current.Init(this, abundle);

        TabLayoutResource = Resource.Layout.Tabbar;
        ToolbarResource = Resource.Layout.Toolbar;


        Xamarin.Essentials.Platform.Init(this, savedInstanceState);
        global::Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init(this, savedInstanceState);
        LoadApplication(new App());

 public override void OnRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode, string[] permissions, [GeneratedEnum] Android.Content.PM.Permission[] grantResults)
        PermissionsImplementation.Current.OnRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults);
        base.OnRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions, grantResults);

When the app is run it gives the wrong Latitude and Longitude but uwp works. Any ideas?
