So un-check GPS and Google. One of those is most likely starting Maps.Originally Posted by acejavelin
That is not the normal GPS on and off. It is to let the phone use the VZW NETWORK, GPS and/or Google determine the phones location. There other places to turn the GPS on for apps.Originally Posted by acejavelin

I've not noticed any difference in battery. If anything, maybe ever so slightly better. I never use maps either and it has always ate up battery, do you guys all recommend freezing it?
I shut the GPS completely off in settings last night, thinking that Maps under battery use was really GPS, and maps is my biggest battery user today, and it hasnt been opened, so I dont get it?
And I have to admit, my battery life seems to be getting better day by day... not sure if it has anything to do with it, but I had to do a battery pull reset because of a misbehaving app the other day (that app is gone now), that is when it seemed to start getting better.

After some googeling I found some people signed into latitude and de-selected the location service even though it already was, and then signed out of latitude. Gonna see if that helps.
