1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Two days ago my battery life took a turn for the worse. Two things seem different. First, I downloaded the Amazon app. Second, when I look at the battery data it shows "MAPS" as having eaten up athe biggest chunk of battery life (Maps-39% and Display-25%). Yesterday, prior to looking at battery life, I did notice it was running in the back ground. But the battery life only tanked 3 days ago. Has something changed to make Maps run automatically? Is it the Amazon app? It does seem that my problem coincided with downloading this app.

    When you are done with maps, you can just press the phone's "home" button and GPS should turn off. Look for the GPS satellite icon in your notification bar at the top of the phone. When you see it, your phone's battery power is being used quickly. Don't leave maps running in the foreground.
