    Ok so I use the weather channel app and it won't update unless I turn on gps. Thing is my phone shows that 40% of my battery use is twc.gps something or other. But its the gps. How do I fix this?

    You don't have to turn on gps to update the weather channel app I keep GPS off unless I'm using it for Nav. you just have to set an area code or location in the home of the weather channel app. I have 4 locations set and they are updated when I look at them through the app.

    You might be referring to the weather channel widget though. I don't use it just the app.
