Switch off Location in the ODK android application

Hello there I am using the ODK android application to transfer some data from a client. I need to switch off the complete location services so as to have no GPS device being listed in the application requirements while installing.
I have tried removing the permissions from the Manifest file. The permission still gets listed in, at the time of permissions.

In addition to removing android.hardware.location.gps, android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION, and android.permission. ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION from the manifest, you might also want to remove all the geo and mapping code. Might also take a look at removing the analytics and bug reporting code.
