To get rid of Google I installed the OS Open Fairphone 2 …
Everything works but the location of the configuration problem is re-appeared
When I enable the localization the “high accuracy” mode is enabled by default.
I rule on “device only” and use my apps easily
but when I reuses the location the “high accuracy” mode is activated again
The experiment via Google Play Services can not be used (full dégooglisation) is there another alternative to resolve the GPS location by default ?
Let localisation-service switched to “on” with “device only”. GPS does not use any interesting amount of power, only the apps which use the localisation-service use very much power. But if not used no power is used.
To avoid confusion with other topics, I’ve added to the title what I understand that your problem is (localisation mode keeps switching back to high accuracy when you’ve set it to device only). Feel free to change it if that isn’t what you meant!
In my mind, lot’s of applications ask for your position for “nothing”, like newspapers, weather widget, etc. But maybe I am wrong.
So I prefer to have my GPS physically off and complicate myself instead of letting access to GPS to apps that, for me, don’t need it
