If you select Battery saving, your phone can find your approximate position using the mobile network and nearby Wi-Fi networks.
If you select Device only, your phone can find your exact position using the GPS satellites but it may take longer as there is no access to supplementary information from the mobile network or nearby Wi-Fi networks.
