Location Usage

If I keep my location turned on all the time whilst I'm out will it use up a lot of my battery power and or data? (^_-)

Thanks in advance

Re: Location Usage

Hi @TINA66,

This is a bit tricky to answer depending on if the location service will be used all the time or not. If you for example, only have it activated to have the weather updated in a widget, not much battery or data will be used.

However, if you are using the device to navigate and the screen is always turned on and GPS feature will need to be updated all the time, more data and battery will be used.

I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face
