    The GPS on my new Droid Razor has been working fine. Suddenly today it gave me a message saying "GPS disabled:location setting." When I press that button it takes me to "locations and services" The Verizon GPS service was enabled. But I couldn't get the GPS to work again until I pressed "stand alone" GPS. I didn't feel comfortable doing that considering the privacy issues, but I needed to use the GPS. Anyone else have this issue or know what caused this?

    Its not an issue actually :) the stand alone GPS is what you use while using google maps and/or navigation.

    Yea leave your standalone GPS on. I put a power widget on my main screen for practicality.

    I actually never turn GPS off on my phone. Its not being used anyway when you're not on maps or something that requires location.

    Okay, but why is it that I previously didn't have to use the "stand alone" GPS setting?
