The GPS on my Samsung Galaxy S2 cannot find my current location whenever Google Location Service is disabled. I have it disabled most of the time because my battery drains much faster when the service is enabled. I disable the option via
System Settings -> Location Services -> Google location service. In the figure below I'm referring to the top option.
Is there a way to do one of these things:
- Somehow obtain my coordinates using GPS without Location Services enabled?
- Intelligently switch on/off Google Location Service when I need it (i.e. like when I'm using my GPS)
- Keep Google Location Service enabled, but somehow prevent it from draining battery.
In short, the problem I want to solve is to get my location coordinates without having Google Location Service drain my battery.
I'm running ICS 4.0.3 on AT&T's network.
