"Location On" allows for both passive and active mode locating. Locate requests can be sent from the handset for use in mapping applications or across the network for tracking applications.
For example: GoTrax is an application offered by Bell Mobility which provides a Web based application through which a handset may be located using either GPS or Cell Tower locates.

"Locate Off" leaves it so that only 911 operators are able to locate your handset.
