    Hello, so i'm just wondering what Google Now gets from having my location history enabled, i understand what it pulls from location reporting...

    Is it worth me keeping it on? Because i'd rather have it off if i doesn't do much for me.

    I guess that the location history allows Google Now to produce card info that is more likely to be helpful and relevant to you than would be possible without taking that history into account.

    Yep, from what i've gathered it seems to be features such as parking location, distance from work/home & commuting predictions, for example if you go somewhere regularly it brings up a suggestion.

    You don't have to use it. I like it but disabled it on my Nexus 5 in an attempt to improve battery life, especially to reduce battery drain overnight. There's a saving but it's not much.

    You're welcome.

    I think there have been changes since then, making it more battery-friendly. I must give it another go myself some time.
