Does Google still get access to location if I turn off the GPS. I know it is still available for 911, but I don’t know if they still get GPS constantly or if they also get cell phone tower info and WiFi router data. I generally turn off GPS unless I specically want it for a minute or two.
Yes, it does - through cell phone tower and known Wifi network triangulation. It’s not as precise as GPS but often it can do well enough.
