    2. GPS makes the location of places much easier. Grammatically correct but I was thrown by "the location" not meaning "the geographical location".
    3. Thanks to GPS, is locating locations places is much easier.
    4. With the help of GPS, it will be easier to find locations.
    5. With the help of GPS, it will become easier to find locations.
    6. GPS will make finding places/locations easier.
    7. It will become easier to find locations with GPS. but it has two possible meanings. Only one of them is the one I think you think it is.
    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
