Although I don't have a direct answer to your question (no experience with ARview), I noticed in the docs:
Note The guide is based on Cordova version 5.0.0 (using PhoneGap-iOS 3.8.0 and PhoneGap-Android 4.0.0)
Cordova 5.0.0 is quite old, meanwhile. Lots have changed with 6.x.
What Phonegap version are you using?
