System settings of GPS in your device are superior to all Locus GPS settings - the system GPS being turned off or if Locus does not have permission for accessing GPS (e.g. for battery-saving reasons) especially in stand-by mode may result in incorrect GPS positioning that influence many Locus features. Check your system settings first!
Sets the way GPS turns on at Locus Map startup:
