Hello,

I have a TomTom Spark 3 Cardio and I was wondering how I can turn off GPS tracking?

I work in the military and recently there has been a ban implemented on GPS tracking devices. I still want to use my Spark 3 as a watch and alarm clock etc., it is just not allowed to track my position when on base or in the field.

Thanks!

    The watch does not track your position unless you are in an activity, GPS is turned off otherwise. If you want to record a sports activity without GPS you would need to use gym mode or indoor cycling, which does not activate GPS. As a watch just for alarms, time, etc., you are fine as it is not recording any position information.

    I hope this helps answer your question. If so, please mark it as a solution so others can look for it if they have the same question.

    Thank you very much, obviously I was not aware of this.
