    Is there any gps function/app that uses handphone data and do not require use of gps satellite?

    I need it so that when I reach places that I cannot connect to gps satellite, I can use the handphone data plan for gps.

    Thanks
    S4

    In the location settings you enable location based on Mobile Network. It won't be accurate as GPS because it relies on mobile towers to triangulate your location.

    Where is the location settings that you mentioned? I cannot find it in my S4.

    Does it mean that after you enable location based on Mobile Network, all the GPS function will use the location based on Mobile Network? Do I need to go to the app to change settings or whatever? For example if I am using Sygic app or Google maps.

    The setting should be with the GPS setting in the devices system settings. I don't have the S4 to tell you where exactly the setting is located. It should be: menu > system settings > location access

    Let me know if you need further assistance, we're here to help.

    I'm going to throw this over to the S4 forum so that you might get some quick help from another S4 owner. Not that srkmagnus's responses go unnoticed.

    If I have ticked the "use GPS satellites" the phone will use GPS satellites. When the phone reaches a place where GPS satellites cannot be connected, will the phone automatically use mobile towers to triangulate my location?
