    Default Sprint G3 "Accelerated Location" Question

    Under General>Location>Mode at the very bottom there's a feature that says "Accelerated Location - Use Qualcomm IZat hardware accelerated location".

    I had an Galaxy S3 prior to the G3 and I've never heard nor seen something like this before (obviously newer phone, newer features). I looked on Google for some explanation of this, but I couldn't find anything. I hope someone here can fill me in about this. Does it eat more battery life, is the location pick up much more faster than "High Accuracy" and what else does it do? I haven't enabled it because I'm worried (although I shouldn't be) it'll do something strange to the phone and have it transform into Megatron for world domination.

    Apparently it is for indoor and venue mapping (like for a museum from what I gather):

    No problems keeping it enabled on both my Sprint G2 and G3.

    Thank you for explaining this. I'll have to try this feature out.
