    Ok dumb question but I had a one click widget for turning on my GPS before ICS that no longer works. Does anyone know of a good one that works? So far I have had no luck & have been having to go in to settings every single time I want to enable it.

    Same thing happened with me on my Droid 4. Apparently Motorola removed their individual widgets (these were Motorola provided widgets) and instead opted to have their users use the All in 1 power control bar. This is not too big a problem as there are 3rd party apps if you want individual widgets (I personally have beautiful widgets which has a single widget for all the options you want). However, it appears that an app can't be written to directly control the GPS, making it a pain in the butt. Motorola somehow had designed a GPS widget for their phones, but it was proprietary. Without their widget, we have no way to control it on and off other than use the giant power control center.

    MOTOFAIL!

    If you go under Widgets they still have the one touch GPS toggle on their stock Power Control thing.

    It has Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync, and screen brightness.

    Open your APP drawer and go to widgets it is the one with the five little icons called Power Control.

    Thank you for your reply, but please read what you are replying to before doing so. I clearly stated that I knew about the power control widget but was not satisfied. The power control widget takes up a 4 x 1 space on the home screen. I am specifically looking for the 1 x 1 GPS toggle style behavior seen in GingerBlur

    I was replying to the OP, who did not mention that Power Control widget.

    No problem that is what I ended up using as well because I like that it can turn sync off. Since I got my Nexus 7 tablet I turn sync off on my phone while I have that around so I don't have double email notifications coming in.
