    Every time I open Google Maps, I get a popup asking for permission to track location. Every time, I say "no." Is there a way to make this permanent, and stop the app for asking for location permissions every time I open it?

    The issue is I've turned off location (I want it off), but Google Maps really thinks I should have it on. I have to specifically opt out every time I open the app.

    I'm on a Verizon S5 running Android 6.0.1. Thanks!

    (Please don't argue with me about how useful location is. I'm not usually looking at the map to find out where I am, so it's not useful for me.)

    Hello. Now look here, Location is good for you!

    Seriously, I'm not sure, but I turned off Location and then turned off all Notifications in Maps - Settings and closed the app twice. It didn't ask me if I want Location back on.
    Maybe turn off Traffic too.
    Sounds like you want an offline map database, and as well as Google Maps there are several good mapping apps available. I use the one by Scholar / Skobbler.
