    Example:
    Location Profile created, say MyHome (Net=Y, GPS=N, 200 mtrs)
    Variable %MyHome~1 if true - %MYHome~0 if false. Then each followed by some tasks/variable set

    All is working fine as intended

    With battery consumption in mind, make a setting to turn Off Location Profile once all the tasks/values are met.

    Problem: If Location Profile is turned Off, results are going back following Exit Task,
    ie. %MyHome~1 back to MYHome~0 etc.

    Questions :
    1. Is this a bug or intended by Developer?
    2. Will it be enough turning Location Mode to Off and leave Location Profile On (as Location Profile will not work without Location Mode on)?
    3. What is the best way to initiate Location Mode turn On? or is it OK to leave both Location Profile and Mode to On?

    Thank you ...

    Hi.
    1. Yes, the exit task will run when a profile is disabled.
    2. Hhmm, that will probably also make the profile be not active anymore because your phone won't be able to get your location
    3. I would advise that %MyHome is not set to 0 by the exit task of that profile. Since you want to turn off location, set it to 0 in some other profile (like when wifi disconnects for example)
