Location services and sources

Use your device to find out where you are. There are two methods, or sources: GPS

satellites and wireless networks. Enable the wireless networks option (Wi-Fi and mobile

networks) if you only need your approximate location, and want it fast. If you want a

more exact position, and have a clear view of the sky, enable the GPS satellites option.

In situations where the wireless network connection is weak, you should enable both

options to ensure that your location is found. Both options are activated by default when

you enable location services.

Sony does not warrant the accuracy of any location services including but not limited to

navigational services.
