    First you have to visit the home screen of your android device. Then you need to move to the Settings app from the main menu options. Next you should choose the ‘Location Services’ option. There you can see the option named ‘Google’s location service’. Clear the checkbox of that particular option. Then you must uncheck the checkbox of the ‘GPS Satellites’ option, as well. Now you will be opted out of location services entirely from map app.
