    If nothing is calling on it, gps doesn't use much juice.

    I leave mine on 24/7.

    I was worried about that at first too, but now I just leave it on all the time. Really seems to have no impact as long as you don't use GPS intensive apps. For instance, Google Tracks will run the battery down faster than you can blink an eye :)

    The only time GPS is drawing power, from what I've heard, is when you see the satellite icon at the top of the screen.
