My Nexus 5 is mostly on Battery saving mode all the time.
When using Google Maps, I do want to use the High Accuracy mode but changing mode frequently is troublesome.
Is the any Apps or Setting that will automate changing mode with different Apps??
Is this doable??

If you go the Tasker route you'll also need to install Secure Settings and the Helper Alternative within Secure Settings or the plug in will not toggle GPS.

Ok, thanks. I will try Tasker.
Trying my best to stay stock on Nexus 5 but Custom Rom is getting more tempting will all the extra setting baked in.
