Xperia X Compact can only turn on with location services off

As of a few weeks ago my Xperia X Compact always starts up (from being completely turned off) with location services off. This means that each time I need to turn it on and wait for the GPS cold start. This is quite inconvenient. Does anybody know what changed?


Since my Chipolos need location services I always keep it on but opt with the battery saving option. Formerly this was working well and when I needed navigation I turned on high accuracy and it found me instantly. Now it's all a hassle. I could just keep the phone on at all times but I'd prefer it off during the night as opposed to having it silenced for example.


Any help would be appreciated.
