Maps - why using so much battery?!

    Been checking my phone status battery usage over the last week.

    Maps seem to be top every time, eg - this morning, had the phone doing nothing for the last 5 hours.

    Maps has used 36% of battery consumption.

    Why is this?

    I have everything turned off - by everything I mean you get this power button display bar - with the screen brightness and wifi, bluetooth and two other symbols (I dont know what they are / stand for, if someone could tell me?) I have all of these things turned off.

    Please help!

    Are you signed in to Latitude? If so, check Settings in the Maps application and sign out, and see if that improves things. I'm not sure if Latitude is called out separately on the Battery Graph or if it's rolled up into "Maps", though, so YMMV.
