    Question about GPS. I leave mine off to save battery...and turn it on when I need to use Garmin. I am curious of what E911 means on the option for GPS. I understand its for emergency location...but does that mean GPS is on? if so, why cant other programs use it....if no, then how does it help 911 locate you?

    It's available to emergency frequencies only. Your GPS is always active, but limited to how you set it. Even with location on, you're not changing anything. It only effects your battery if apps use the GPS in the background to update your location.
