    So un-check GPS and Google. One of those is most likely starting Maps.

    Yeah, probably will as soon as I find a widget to toggle it easily (I know they are out there, I just have to look a little bit) since I do geocaching, kinda tough to do without the GPS.

    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.

    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?

    Weird, I turned off GPS Only (left Network and Google location services active) and have not had a single instance of Maps show up in what's using my battery since 11:00pm last night.

    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.

    lol... guess so, I thought like most other manufacturers it was just a shortcut to the Location Settings page, guess it does actually toggle the GPS, my bad... but it doesn't fit with the widgets I am using now which show the Wireless network I am connected too (and on/off toggle), allow me to change the brightness in 8 steps or double tap for Automatic, what BT profile is connected, etc.
