    no

    only when the reciever is in use. when it is in use the satellite icon will appear in the status bar.

    i recently switched my homepage to the desktop version of google because the mobile version keeps requesting gps info despite my best efforts to disable that (both in the page settings, and browser settings).

    i guess one way or another, google WILL know your location if you have gps enabled.

    Not a battery killer
