Glad that it resolved your google service battery drain issue.
I saw the XDA link above and I find it interesting because I always thought the other way (keeping GPS off but google location thru WiFi/data on) of location setting is more battery efficient. Doesn't it disable news/weather apps location access if location through WiFi/data is off?
