    Would leaving location on(GPS) but not using the GPS drain battery? I never use the GPS since I rarely use maps but I would like GPS to be on if I ever lose my phone and need to track it with smrtguard. I don't want it to drain battery if I never use it though

    I leave mine on all the time and I don't notice any battery drainage. I also really never use the GPS function. I mainly leave it on for pictures.

    Location On is just an option to dictate what information the GPS provides. Unless an app is actively using the GPS, it doesn't consume the battery at all.

    I have been asking myself the same question and this makes total sense. Thanks.
