How do I change my location settings?
Your device uses a combination of Wi-Fi, GPS and mobile networks to determine your location.
You can switch Location on and off, and change how your device determines your location.
Changing your location setting to a highly accurate setting will result in your device more accurately pin-pointing your location but will result in increased data usage and use more battery. A lower setting will be less accurate but save battery and mobile data.
Update: if you are getting location error messages or 'signal not found' while playing Pokémon Go even when locations and GPS are turned on, this is due to the game requiring that the Mock Locations setting is turned off on Android phones. The Mock Locations setting can be found by turning on the Developer Menu.
