I have had the tablet for a year, do use the GPS at times (only in astronomy apps and weatherbug) , and haven't seen the memory error (knock on wood). If I do, I'll root the tablet. I want to know why such a difference.
If I do root the tablet - Maps would be deleted, totally. Anything social will be deleted. Acer's junk will be deleted if not frozen.
If the GPS uses Google Maps to store the text, I've disabled Maps. I've disabled Location. These no longer show up in updates in Play. I've disabled all of Acer's junk.
I've noticed that my astronomy apps have to check the GPS each time I open one. So does Weatherbug. If there was a stored text file, wouldn't they just access it?
Does the A100 have this problem, too?
The the .txt files from GPS receiver debug logging are written into /data/gps. You can delete them if you have root privileges.
If you turn off GPS Satellites under Settings > Location services, the GPS will not run, so it will then also not write any log files into /data/gps.
You can permanently resolve the problem as described here by turning off the unnecessary logging: I ran out of space ugh! Solution
This has nothing to do with Google Maps or any other app. This is an internal OS issue that was delivered by Acer in the stock ICS build on all Iconia tablets, including the a500, a100, and a200.
