    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone do you have?

    You can turn it on a few different ways, depending on your device.

    1. The surefire way is to go to Settings>Location, and tap Mode. If you want GPS on, select "High accuracy" (which uses GPS, Wi-fi and mobile networks to determine location) or "Device only," which only uses GPS. "Battery saving" keeps GPS off, and relies only on wi-fi and mobile networks, so it's not quite as accurate.

    2. If you have phone with Android 4.2 or above, swipe down from the top of the screen with two fingers and tap the Location button. This is a shortcut to the above menu.

    3. There are also plenty of GPS toggle widgets you can install from Google Play.
