My Moto X came with a widget that could turn the location services on or off with having to open the settings. I'm guessing it was a motorola thing. I have not found anything for the s5 that will do it. Apparently its a google security thing? Any widgets out there that can do it?

You can just edit the shortcuts on the notification panel pull down settings to show the "location" button. You can toggle it on and off from there with a pull down and a press, I have mine set up like that.

Have you tried long pressing the toggle and turning it off in settings?

Who are you? You've commented on literally every thread in the S5 forums just repeating what someone else says/suggests...

Apparently a troll.. I've been noticing that too. I just ignore them, whoever they are.

to OP. That's because the Location Services are in depth. I believe I had two Approvals when I turned mine on the first time.

Well, I guess I'll leave it on since it doesn't drain the battery unless its in use. Thanks everyone (troll excluded).
