    Gps icon stays on in the notification bar constantly. Does anyone know of a fix for this? It's happening on Droid 2. Turning off gps doesn't really seem like a fix to me.

    So you've tried going into the navigation pressing menu, then pressing exit navigation?

    Yes. That doesn't seem to do it either but thank you for the suggestion.

    If that doesnt work, You could force stop it and wipe its data in settings>applications>manage applications. I think you would look for maps though because its part of google maps

    Tb I took your advice a little further and cleared data on all apps that use gps. Seems to have worked. Thank you and the others who gave advice. Much appreciated.
