    Does anyone know if google maps tries to enable wifi during initialization or while running? I am running eclair and noticing an interesting thing that if you exit google maps while it's trying to acquire GPS, or just at the right moment, WIFI becomes activated and if you exit google-maps wifi stays enabled. If wifi stays enabled it drains the battery.

    On my HTC Magic, running 1.6 it has never done it as far as I noticed.

    I've had a look at the required permissions and turning on wi-fi doesn't seem to be one of them.

    Are you sure your not running a modfied version of google maps such as one from xda? :)
