How your device finds your location
Your device uses your IP address to find your approximate location. Your device sends that info to Google Location Services to estimate your time zone. If you choose "Set automatically using your accurate location," your device also sends info about nearby Wi-Fi or data networks (if your device has a data plan). This info helps your device find your location more accurately.
