Use Maps to find out where you are, attach your location to the photos you take. Location info can be attached to a photo or video, if your location can be determined using satellite or network technology. If you share a photo or video that contains location info, the location info may be shown to those who view the photo or video. Some apps can use your location information to offer you a wider variety of services.
Your phone shows your location on the map using a satellite positioning system, Wi-Fi, or network (Cell ID) based positioning.
Some satellite positioning systems may require small amounts of data to be transferred over the mobile network. If you want to avoid data costs, when travelling, for example, you can switch the mobile data connection off in your phone settings.
Wi-Fi positioning improves positioning accuracy when satellite signals are not available, especially when you are indoors or between tall buildings. If you‘re in a place where the use of Wi-Fi is restricted, you can switch Wi-Fi off in your phone settings.
