I had no idea this was so highly requested. I never spent any time in /r/xposed until today. The notification just really started to piss me off. Good to see others find it useful.

True it helps but I also don't like having my WiFi connect automatically to work. So I have to turn it off.

Just a quick note, this also turns off the dialog when the location settings are non-optimal. Like battery saver mode (or GPS being off completely). I could differentiate between the two but I assume you know what you're doing.

Haven't installed it yet but hope it works. Keeping WiFi on is a not well thought out option to use maps. I can't begin to list how many networks that I've used that require web authentication in order to use their WiFi network. I can't begin to say how frustrating it is when I'm driving, your phone picks up one of these saved networks, tries to connect and gets no internet connection. Looking forward to trying it out

Now if only it is possible to turn off the "feature" that disconnects you from a WiFi network (e.g. WiFi at Starbucks, Xfinity hotspots, wholefoods, Lowe's, Ikea, home depot), telling you that it might not be stable before you even have a chance to try and authenticate through a webpage

Keep up the good work!

Settings -> Wi-Fi -> Menu -> Advanced -> Avoid poor connections -> Uncheck

Oh, stock then? It's probably some rom-specific code/app that I wouldn't have access to. Unless someone with your phone can take a look the only other fix would be to install a new rom, which may not be possible. Sorry.

Yeah, stock with root injected. I would go with a different SGS3 Rom if I knew of a good one that worked work t-mobile WiFi calling

Previous versions of the maps app had a "do not show again" check box, but Google removed it. Presumably this allows them to cash in on gathering more data on users by nagging them until they turn their wifi on all the time.

I'd get banned if I described my opinion of Google in any detail, so I'll just say "Thanks, Kevin!" Donation sent.
