    Does Lattitude kill battery life

    hey guys,

    2 years with my droid and I never tried lattitude. LOL

    My wife is about to take a cross country trip and asked if we should use lattitude.

    Will this kill battery life? Also will we need to have google maps running the entire time to locate each other?

    Yes it is murderous on battery.

    Used up my battery (20%) when I'm normally at 60-70% at the end of my work day.

    Sent from my GimpDroid (Installed by RZR).

    Hmmm...ok that's what I thought.

    Maybe it's best to use wavesecure than since it's not constantly using the GPS.

    Thanks!

    Well I have to totally disagree here. I have zero drain from Latitude....doesn't even show up on usage.
    Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.

    Cool, do you have to have maps constantly open to be located?

    I use latitude all the time and I don't see any drain. Maps doesn't run all the time. It updates anytime your phone updates its location. Maps doesn't have to be open. The widget also has a refresh button.

    I have Latitude enabled on my D2 and the better half's D2 all the time. I have GPS enabled on both phones all the time. I see no significant drain from either.
