There are 3 types of geolocation:
1.The most accurate - by GPS and communication networks, however, consumes a lot of energy.
2. The less accurate - only on communication networks, more economical.
3.The accurate, but working only in open areas - only by GPS
Click on the word "mode" in the "Location" to switch the mode and select an option.
Despite the fact that the geolocation consumes more energy, we still recommend that you should not turn off it during travel, and to replenish the charge, it recommend purchasing a portable "Powerbank" type of charger.
