    What we are looking for is to tap on "Mode".
    One tap on "Mode" will allow us to choose which "Location services" mode we would like to have. There are three types to choose:
    • "High accuracy", which uses a combination of GPS, mobile networks, and our wireless network;
    • "Battery saving", which only uses our wireless network and our mobile network;
    • "Device only", which only uses the GPS service of our device.
