    8830 GPS battery consumption

    Can anyone tell me it the GPS feature in enabled "location on" does this consume more battery power? should it be turned off when not used or can it be left on all the time?

    Hello,

    I am quite new in using the 8830 phone, but from my short experience, I tried the GPS nav application and can say that it does consume more battery power when in use. Probably because of the constant localisation and use of the screen, but I am not an expert of course! As I find this application very useful, got a car charger and holder, so no more battery problem!

    Not as much as leaving a GPS enabled application going in the background, THAT will drain your battery quickly. Just having it enabled won't be that noticable.
