Turn GPS on/off

Your Samsung Galaxy Precedent smart phone features GPS (Global Positioning System) that can be very useful for a variety or reasons. This is a necessary feature to use your maps and other location and navigation features. When you are not using maps or your GPS, you want to keep GPS satellites turned off in order to preserve battery. You can turn GPS satellites on or off manually.
