Hello Futomi,

By default, tizen sdk disable location service. To use geolocation service
on Tizen browser, you need to enable location service in Setting menu.

Setting -> All tab -> Location -> Enable Location service, Advanced GPS ->
Network position -> Sensor aiding and so on.

I succeed to run below geolocation demo site on browser of Tizen SDK.

I wonder whether you enable location service option in setting menu.
