GPS in mobile phones only “on” when 911 dialed (in 80s called cell phones) ?

Bovine Feces!  I find the battery in my moto e815 lasts longer when I disable the GPS “feature” in one of the hidden menus.  Now if it was only “on” when I dialed 911, and I haven’t yet dialed 911 from my phone why does the battery last longer with the feature only “on” when 911 is dialed is disabled?

are you ready to receive a speeding ticket courtesy GPS in your mobile phone?

will I have to store my mobile phone in a tiny Faraday jacket until I’m ready to dial?

its almost as creepy as Gmail

(stop refering to mobile phones as cell phones)
