    Pull down the notification bar, and hit the GPS button.

    Ta da!
    Oh, and make sure that if you aren't using it to turn it off the same way as it eats up the battery.

    All you need to download is google maps. Only have gps on when using maps.

    You are turning on your GPS the right way. You will only see the GPS icon in the notification bar if an app is actively using the GPS receiver. Otherwise it disappears.
