I am leaving on a camping trip tomorrow. I have an iPhone 6 from my employer. I would like to use the phone for GPS (vis Google Maps) over the weekend, but do not want to receive a single notification for a phone call, text message, calendar invite or email (I am using the Good app). Is there any way to put my phone on airplane mode but keep GPS on? Thanks in advance.
If you want to completely disable all cellular abilities (calls, texting, data) you could simply take out the SIM. True GPS still works fine, as that does not use the cellular network.
You can go to Settings and turn Cellular Data off (turn WiFi off for good measure also in case you wander past a WiFi network). Also turn on Do Not Disturb mode. You still use the cell radio to locate your position, unlike in Airplane Mode.
