Hiya, I have read online that by switching off Google Location Services in the settings will improve battery life. I know it all sounds obvious but am just checking what I will physically lose by switching this off? And also is it a big drain on battery. 

I use Google maps a lot which I am guessing will be affected.

Sorry for the stupid question

Each app now allows you to tweak permissions like Location, might be better to try that way first than a total switch off.

But bet you Google will make it as painful as possible, as in lots of alerts asking for permission or not working due to it being off.
