    GPS Icon never goes away

    I realize that some apps use gps, google uses gps.

    I looked in my task manager nothing is running

    but my gps icon is on but the little waves arent moving at all

    It never goes away, just sits there.

    Anyone have same problem?

    Fix ?

    is there an app that is doing it that doesnt show?

    A setting?

    I am using the Advanced App Killer to make sure any apps I am not currently using are turned off. That may help with your problem.

    go into settings/location and security/uncheck "Use GPS satellites"

    no need for resets

    Agreed, leaving sattelite GPS on will kill you battery pretty quick, I only turn it on when I need very good accuracy, like when navigating, the aGPS (cell tower based) gives good enough accuracy for location based services.

    You can also add the power control widget to one of your home screens for quick access to toggling on and off the WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and Cellular radios as well as the bright backlight.

    I disagree. I see no difference in battery life by leaving GPS on all the time.

    This simply isn't true. GPS isn't running all the time--only when actively being used by an app. GPS draws so little power that it doesn't even show up in the Battery Use monitor.
