You are right, of course.
These days, no option for turning the gps hardware on or off. Gps is 
turned on automatically by fso-gpsd, when an app tries to use it.

Check if you have one of the older freerunners that have problems using 
gps and SDcard at the same time. Take the sdcard out, and rund from 
flash. If the gps is better, then that was the problem. You should also 
be able to see a tiny capacitor between two of the pins under the sdcard 
slot. If it isn't there, then your phone have this problem.
