    How do I stop Location from turning on at start up, running Android 7 on a Galaxy Note 5.

    (Android Version 7 seems to be the only version to which Verizon is updating it as of 3/13/18 - wondering why, but back to the matter at hand...)

    The battery runs down fast with Location turned on, and I'd like Location to Not turn on automatically every time the phone reboots. Am not a geek and don't know techspeak, but I can follow simple directions. Can anybody help me out? Thanks!

    The GPS receiver ("location") doesn't draw much at all unless some app is asking it for your location. Find out what app is running when you start, that's asking for your location, and set it to not start at startup. (Startup Manager will help with that.)
