    Default Why does new GPS/Location on Kitkat require me to "Agree" twice now??

    Hi all,

    Before Kitkat it was great because I could just hit GPS once and it would be activated. I wouldn't have to go through 2 more "Agree" screens.

    Does anyone know why they went back to the nag screens? Is there any way to change that? (No, I don't want to root either).

    Thanks everyone...

    What do you mean "GPS"?
    Do you mean to tell me that I can make a phone call on this thing?!!!

    In the dropdown menu next to the WiFi button. It used to say GPS. Now it says Location.

    I assume it's the same as the old GPS button.

    Once it's on you shouldn't have to activate it again.

    Thanks, yes I know that.

    But since I don't need GPS 24/7, I like to have it off so it doesn't eat up my battery. Plus, I used Tasker so all I had to do it click one icon to start gps and select destination.

    I noticed that too after the Kit Kat update. I long pressed that button and it gves you the option to select more general location option as opposed to exact location in order to save the battery. I used to keep mine off most of the time but i think with the latest update it seems to use more battery if you turn it off compleatly as I think some apps need it on to work correctly.
