    So I this is an issue that I have always noticed but just decided now to create a thread for it as to a question of why Google Maps is running in the background and how can I make it stop? It takes about 5mb of RAM which I care about since I am using a very low memory device, The Motorola Droid 1.

    Here's a pic:

    Any ideas of how I can make it stop running in the background? It is confirmed that GPS if off and im not signed in to Latitude or anything like that.

    Try signing out of latitude. That worked for me.
