    Does Google Sky Map need to have the GPS on to accurately display where the stars are?

    I noticed yesterday I did not have GPS on and when I held the phone up, the stars were not lining up with what the phone was showing on the screen.

    Hi - it shouldn't need GPS. If your phone has a network connection then it should be able to deduce your location accurately enough from that.
