It's an LG39C, came with Android 4.1 or 4.2, forgot already. My first "smart" phone, haven't even activated the service yet (it's a Tracfone). At the moment am trying out "mapmyride" as I had an account with them years ago (purely web based), and it turns out that the account is still there, so, what they heck.
[My "dumb" phone has a battery which is no longer going a week between charges. Batteries are cheap I know. But I've been wanting a GPS for a while now, and it'd be nice to have an "all in one" sort of package. So this is an experiment for me.]
I know how to get to settings on the Android but nothing says "GPS". I think there is a locations enable/disable, so perhaps that is the master switch on the GPS portion too.
I'll play with it some more. The app powers up with a map of where I am (or last was), perhaps there is a setting left on or something. I didn't see any sort of "exit this app" like in classic Windows programs.
