    its in the options>device>location settings.

    it may impact how some programs work that rely on gps. such as programs that find gas nearby or facebook if you use places in the app.

    Well the Global Positioning System when turned ON, assists in Location based Services of certain applications but sure it does consume colossal amounts of energy. If you do not subscribe to any such services then it's advisable to turn it off also also the Wi-Fi off when the Wi-Fi is not in use.
