GPS function parental control

You can use SeekDroid (GTMedia) to remotely enable GPS. It's primarily an app to locate your lost or stolen device and will display it's location on a map as one of its many features. It doesn't lock the GPS permanently on but it may be a good, cost effective workaround for now. Another app to consider is Tasker (Crafty Apps). You may be able to create a Tasker profile to automatically turn on the GPS when the Google Navigation or Google Maps app is in use or perhaps possibly when the vehicle is moving or at a certain speed.
