When I switch to 'Power saving' mode under Location method, my GPS is switching on too. But, Power saving mode is WiFi + mobile. When I switch off GPS, the whole Location thing is switching off.

I can't find something about this, so maybe someone has an idea?

Try resetting the phone by taking the battery out when on

Sorry I guess I misunderstood your question...

If you tap off the toggle that says GPS, yes that turns off all locations services... Is working as designed.

Really strange.
I got 3 options.
1. High accuracy (wifi+gps+mobile)
2. Power saving (wifi+mobile)
3. GPS only

You're saying, that option 2 is not existing?
It should only use wifi+mobile. NOT gps.
So it's not working properly. Before the update to NC9 firmware, it was working fine.

Quoting you..... "When I switch off GPS, the whole Location thing is switching off"
Yes that is how it works, if you tap the GPS toggle from the notifications......

Now... for this..."When I switch to 'Power saving' mode under Location method, my GPS is switching on too" let me do some test and get back to you...

Flashed another NC9, and again the same problem. Guess that's why there are so few NC9 firmwares.
