    Looks like the gps icon, and its on. Which means your location is public. You van turn it off in the settings menu.

    That is the gps icon for maps/navigation. The other is for other services like 911 I suppose.

    Ah thanks. I couldn't turn off the 911 location service so the icon stayed but I was able to turn off Verizon location services which made the little signal thingys go away. Trying to implement some battery saving techniques on her phone.

    Here is a listing of all HTC Sense Notification Tray icons...

    Odd that it is missing the GPS icon...

    Hello, i think that is the 911 location service icon. That is what the same symbol has meant with previous phones. There should be a way to disable under settings or location/network settings. Hope this can help and i hope the icon hasnt changed

    The target is e911 and the symbols between it and 3g are location on symbols. They are saying the phone has permission to use the data that e911 is using for your location type apps.
    e911 cannot be turned off and the others use no battery so it's not going to kill your battery, just make it easier for your weather, directions and shopping apps to know where you are
