services, such as helping you find nearby shops and restaurants, adding location information to pictures you
take with your phone, or showing you your location on a map.
Your phone can calculate its approximate location based on nearby wireless networks and by using its GPS
(Global Positioning System) antenna, which receives signals from satellites. Using wireless networks to
determine location is faster but less precise; using GPS is more precise but generally slower and requires a
visible sky. You can enable and disable each of these features, and you can enable both if preferred.
