I'm seeing the same thing - if I leave GPS off, google services battery consumption is minimal. If I turn GPS on (with no other change), google services consumes a huge portion of the battery.

I really need GPS only for navigation, so I use a tasker profile to enable GPS whenever I launch maps, and disable it when I exit maps.
