Location settings

Some apps use your location to provide information that you need. Choose a location mode to use based on how accurate you want these apps to determine your location.
  1. From the Home screen, swipe up and then tap Settings > Location
  2. If the On/Off switch is off, tap it to turn on location mode.
  3. Tap Mode, and then select one of the following location modes:
    • High accuracy provides a better estimate of your location. It relies on GPS, Wi‍-Fi, Bluetooth, or mobile networks to determine your location. This mode uses Google location services.
    • Battery saving relies on Wi‍-Fi, Bluetooth, or mobile networks without using GPS to consume lesser battery power. This mode uses Google location services.
    • Device only uses GPS.
Note: Turning off a location source (for example GPS) means no applications on HTC Desire 12 will collect your location data through that location source. However, third party applications may collect — and HTC Desire 12 may continue to provide — location data through other sources, including through Wi‍-Fi and signal triangulation.
