    When I toggle my location off to save battery, I also lose Cortana :( search button directly opens Bing search. Any way to use Cortana without location info?

    hit search button to bring up Cortana > open Hamburger (top right) > Settings > (scroll down) tap on battery saver > Allow app to run in background should be "on" > mark box that says "allow to run in background even with batt saver" :)

    If this works report back :)

    My problem is not with battery saver. Cortana doesn't work if gps is off.

    Hope they change this.

    Quite the battery hog.

    Agreed. Location instantly halves my battery life.

    I also read that location has to be on to use Cortana. I think they said it was because if you ask something related to where you are like "Where is the closest restaurant? " Cortana will be able to answer you properly.

    Not a real argument. Cortana could simply ask "May I use you location to find a answer for your question". If yes she could turn it on and off after she got the information.
