    How to turn OFF GPS option of Toshiba Excite Android tab?

    I donít want to use the GPS option that is offered with my Toshiba Excite Android tab. It seems turned ON by default which drains off most of my battery. How can I turn that option OFF to save the battery?

    You have to first visit the home screen of your Toshiba Excite tab. You can see a number of menu options available on the start up screen. There you need to select the settings option to get into the settings page. Then you have to move to the ‘Personal’ option found within the settings page. From there you have to tap on the option named ‘Location services’. There you can see the option labelled ‘GPS’. You can simply tap on that option to turn it to OFF position.
