    Default Location / GPS Widget?

    My Moto X came with a widget that could turn the location services on or off without having to open the settings. I'm guessing it was a motorola thing. I have not found anything for the s5 that will do it. Apparently its a google security thing? Any widgets out there that can do it?

    Use two fingers and swipe down, the above shown menu should display, then toggle it on and off. You can even move the location icon to the 1st position if you wanted by going to settings-notification panel, then arrange as needed.
