    hi all,

    today i've factory reset my nexus, before that i was able to use power toggle to power on and off my gps, without entering the gps settings.
    problem is that after the factory reset, i cant toggle it in one click.

    any ideas?

    thanks

    Did you reinstall power toggle? Toggling GPS is not a stock feature

    yes , i did.
    now when you power toggle GPS is it taking you to settings page rather than toggling??

    with 4.3 my n4 started to do this with GPS and NFC toggle. can you confirm this?

    I can't toggle after the 4.3 update either.

    If I use the stock toggle widget, in the widget drawer, it appears to toggle the GPS, at least it isn't taking me to settings

    from Power Toggle description page. wonder why it worked before but not now???

    FAQ
    1) Can the GPS toggle be single click instead of a shortcut to system settings?
    No. Direct GPS toggle is not possible due to security restrictions on android.

    Not sure about the GPS but in some area's yes they did, for the most part that is a good fact.
