Suposedly it inceases accuracy/speed of the gps. I havent seen any proof that its in my gn lol
Honestly, id rather not have a useless marketing feature in my phone draining the battery.
The barometer is a very useful feature when you have the GPS enabled
To get a GPS coordinate you need 3 positions. X,Y,Z. Your phone can estimate X and Y based on cell towers. The barometer allows it to estimate altitude (or Z). So it allows for quicker GPS positioning. When not using GPS, I doubt it is turned on.
