    Default GPS settings?

    Hey all,
    Just got the S5, very impressed so far. But I cant find the GPS settings, or where to turn the GPS on and off. Am I stupid? Or did they just hide it very well?

    If you long-press on the "location" setting in your setting tray, you can change the modes of how your phone uses locations.

    Leaving Location Based Services on is a huge battery drain on the 2013 Kindle Fire HDX; thus, I leave it off unless necessary. Does it also drain the Galaxy S5 battery in large amounts?

    If you have installed GSam Battery Monitor, you can see exactly how much battery drain is caused by Location Services.
