    I have a pay as you go mobile which I also use as a satnav . I´ve noticed that my credit keeps vanishing even tho´ I have mobile data switched off . Checking with my network provider , I was told to swith off " Location " as that uses my sim card if no wifi avaiable .

    Is this correct ? If so how can I prevent this ?

    I cannot plot a route on my satnav without location on .

    Please could anyone suggest a solution i.e. switch off/on 2G 3G etc .

    Thanks in advance .
