    Default S5 GPS on?

    A few of my apps ask me to enable GPS, but my "location" is already on. Isn't location the GPS on these phones? I can't get past that screen on those particular apps. One of them is the VZ navigator. WTF isn't there a real GPS on/off switch on these phones?

    Sorry, I think I figured it out. Have to go to mode setting within the location settings. I had an S2 before this, so it's probably more of an android version change than an s5 thing.

    As you've probably seen by now, you can have Location Services on with the actual GPS radio off, if you have it set to Battery Saving (which uses wi-fi and mobile data connections to estimate your location).
