Automatically capturing the GPS locations

What are the potential negative side effects capturing GPS locations with
every form? For example, will the application slow down significantly or
could phone battery drain more quickly? Our users frequently have little
or no cell phone signal, which may affect this. Thanks, Ray

I haven’t heard any reports of this feature appreciably slowing down the
application. GPS can generally be a battery hog - I love this post
https://www.quora.com/Why-does-GPS-use-so-much-more-battery-than-any-other-antenna-or-sensor-in-a-smartphone
from
a Google engineer explaining why. Also should note that its possible
(albeit slower) to get a GPS lock without any data connection.
