Google's location service & GPS support
even when location reporting and location history are turned off,
Google periodically reports data for use by various apps from
sources such as Wi-Fi, mobile networks, and GPs to determine
your approximate location at any given time.
To turn off these services, go to
cation services and uncheck both Google's location service and
GPS satellites. Doing so will disable most of Google Now's capa-
bilities as well as many other useful features of your tablet.
