    What's up with that? It's bothering me. I haven't opened it in days, probably weeks, and it says it's the highest used app in the battery left widget. Even more than the screen??

    Did you update to the new Google Maps a few weeks back?

    You might consider uninstalling and reinstalling.

    This is one of the few times I would advocate a task killer. Browsers have been known to leave GPS on when they are closed. Perhaps Google Maps is going the same.

    I uninstalled the updates and re-installed them, also this was the cahrge I was planning to run my phone dead so I did that, hence a restart and we'll see once the battery is full again.

    Thanks for the suggestions.
