Set up location access for PACE Drive

As you might have noticed when opening the app for the first time, PACE Drive needs access to your precise location. This allows us to compare prices at gas stations near you and to check in the app that you are really at the gas station at which you want to pay. This prevents you from accidentally activating the pump at the wrong gas station and possibly having other customers fill up at your expense.
