Avoid Using Phone GPS
We get it, knowing directions perfectly these days can be tough. Plus, trying to follow printed-out Mapquest directions can be a giant headache. This is why the invention of a global positioning system or GPS was a lifesaver. Sometimes, this could even be taken literally. Yet in order to use your phone GPS for any version, Google Maps or otherwise, you have to turn your location on. This, as we referenced earlier, is a giant no-no.
We do understand though. When it comes to how to vanish from the internet, there should be some limitations. After all, you did have a VPN on that could assist you. The VPN, however, would only get in the way rather than help you in this case. Yet there is hope. You can use a Tom-Tom or other external GPS that will only help with your directions. While it will need to know your location to give proper directions, you can delete any logs if it saves any at all. Plus, none of this is being used online but a person could still hack into the GPS. Thus, you should only use it out of necessity.
