Yes. In case you have geolocation function activated and you have defined a program of the thermostat that considers your distance from home you can keep the GPS geolocation switched off on your smartphone or tablet if you are far away from the minimum distance set on the App.

Otherwise, if you are coming back home and you wish to track your GPS position, then switch on geolocation on your mobile device before reaching minimum distance set, because your mobile phone needs a technical time to triangulate your GPS position precisely.
