This GPS Coordinates app is a feature derived from its parent app (U.S. Cop). This is available singularly for those who need something simple to acquire only GPS coordinates. Upon opening the app, the users current GPS coordinates are immediately acquired and displayed. The map pin remains centered at all times. Users can also move the background map to acquire GPS coordinates for a different location or type a specific address to acquire coordinates for. BTW...the "Record Audio" permission is because this feature is a derivative of US Cop app, which has audio recording. If you don't like it, don't download the FREE app...whiny butts.
