Hope this helps!
I thought turning location on which is the GPS will eat the battery? Can you help tell me where to go to turn that on?
Unless I'm confused with the location GPS vs Google now
Yes I switched from Android to Win Mo 6.5 HD2 I actually use my HD2 for my penny stock pick and make money. About to flash it tho.

Go to settings > Location > Save mode (for me). You should have "Google position update" > Hit it > Activate both options.

These instructions don't correspond to anything in Android KitKat 4.4.2

Well it's my own translation... I don't have an english version.
Here are attached two screenshots. It should be enough to understand well.
