Enabling or Disabling Location Services

The location services feature must be enabled for your device to find your location, calculate routes, and provide navigational assistance. You can disable location services to plan a route when GPS signals are not available. When location services are disabled, the device enables a GPS simulator to calculate and simulate routes.

TIP: Disabling location services can help save battery power.
  1. Select Settings > Personal > Location.
  2. Select the toggle switch to enable or disable location services.
NOTE: For most uses, you should not change the Mode setting from the default option of Device only. The device includes a high-performance GPS antenna that provides the most accurate location data while navigating.
