    Default GPS Location when lost or stolen

    I lost my s4 recently and now im getting the s5 its on its way and should be here on wed. Anyways if there was an app or a way to turn on the phone remotely i would have been able to find it as i am sure i was close to the person who took in the store. Is there any way rooted or unrooted to turn on a phone remotely after it has been shut down by the thief?
