It is the e911 icon and turning on any GPS app will put those curved lines beside it indicating GPS is being used. It is there until you root your phone. This is only a Verizon/Samsung deal. Sprint, AT&T, T mobile don't have the icon. Verizon a came to the conclusion last Saturday that some reps are lazy/stupid. Took my old phone and new phone she told me I had to do it because they don't/can't do it. When I had them do it 3 months ago.
By the way the icon is page 20 in the online manual, Verizon's link didn't work.
Root that rascal.
