    I was messing with my Droid a little while ago and all of a sudden I noticed some satellite dish in the top tray right next to the 3G icon. I was just wondering what's going on with my Droid.

    That wasn't a manual, that was a small pamphlet. But why in the World am I seeing the GPS icon every few minutes now despite being in the same spot?

    I meant the first time I saw it, which was probably the first day. Then I realized it from the GPS widgets, which I got on the first night. :)

    it could be multiple things, if your using your browser with "my location" on, widgets like the weather channel one, you never turned your gps off other other apps. To see what running go to settings>about phone> battery use. That will tell you whats apps/widgets are active

    You know you could be right. I was on the internet, I kept going back to Google and it kept changing my location. It was kind of weird though, I was in the same spot the whole time and just about every time I ended up back on Google it was a new location.

    Thanks, its Jubei from Ninja Scroll. You just reminded to go watch Sword Of The Stranger, I keep forgetting.
