I currently am using the Moto G, Android v. 4.4.4. Every time I turn the phone on I am getting a notification as follows: "GPS and Assist: GPS needs to be on and set to high accuracy mode in order to detect your location and activity."

I don't wish to turn on the GPS function. Is there any way to prevent this notification from appearing each time the phone is turned on?

Factory data reset. Backup your info and so a factory data reset.

I've never seen that notification before and the phone doesn't usually act up unless you get a 3rd party app.

Factory reset = Problem solved guaranteed

Think I have a solution without doing the reset. Went to Settings>Apps>Assist then unchecked the Show notifications box. Turned phone off then on - no GPS notification. Thanks for the suggestions.
