    Hello Guest,
    You can easily enable GPS. Either pull down the notification bar and tap on icon for GPS. Or you can point to Menu>Settings>Location and security. Under My Location section, enable both the options which are "Use Wireless Networks", and "Use GPS Satellites". That's it. Now exit to homescreen and you can use GPS in apps now. Please note that you also require a working internet connection for proper use of GPS feature. Thank you.

    It will activate GPS on your mobile.

    Hi,
    In order to activate GPS in your android phone that is Samsung Galaxy S3 open the application drawer by pressing the menu icon. There you will find an option to enter into "Settings" there you will find an option as "Location Services" select that by selecting that you will be able to change the settings of the GPS that is to enable or disable GPS settings in your phone. Also there are two options available in order to change the GPS settings that is you can change the GPS settings by changing the Positing System to either Wireless Networks or by the use of GPS satellites the latter is more accurate. Also you can use Google Maps for navigation purpose and it can be done all over India.
    Hope this Helps.

    It is possible to use GPS in your phone.But for that it is important that your device has internet connection.While using GPS your phone will consume lots of battery.So,use GPS when require most.To activate it go to menu from your home screen.In that will see Settings,now tap that once open drag to below.There will see Location & Security.Tap that & will find many options.Above will see USE GPS Satellites.Near that will see Check box tap that box & GPS will be activated.Above GPS will see USE WIRELESS NETWORKS.Also make make that.Because even if GPS is off wireless network will work.Once you activate GPS will see icon appeared in notification bar.
