    You can search on the Google and you will be able to get the link of the setting to do the activations of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and you will be able to trace from the satellite as it is been connected with the satellite. As it is the position based services which is becomes a huge battery draw off when it is left running in the background of the phone. That is why the Android provide a particular control for the GPS chip in the entire devices. Actually there are some of the custom widgets which permit you to turn on or turn off the GPS satellite location, which is from exactly from the home screen. In daily use, it is the good battery performs to leave the GPS satellite location off until it is been required for Google Maps or for navigation applications.
