Default location icon missing (?)

Hi,

I just installed Virtuous 3.2 last week and so far, I'm rather impressed. The improved battery life is a huge plus for me.

My question is about the location service. The crosshair location icon in the status bar has been gone since I installed Virtuous. The icon is missing weather I have any or all of the location options truned on or off. I saw the threads where people wanted to get rid of it so I was wondering if anyone knows if the developer took the icon out in response to all those wanting to get rid of it?

I usually have all location services turned off to conserve battery life. I guess my only real concern is that the 9-1-1 location service is active. The option is grayed-out and it says that it can't be turned off but with the icon missing, I just want to be sure that it is actually on.

Default It's a feature, not a bug

Yes, rmk40 removed the location icon in the notification bar for when location is off. If you turn on GPS, it will reappear. He believed (and I agree) it's stupid to have the icon sitting there when location is off.

I believe the icon only appears when gps is actively being used (you'll get the satellite dish)

Default RE: location icon missing (?)

What you're saying would make sense but in my case, the icon is never there, even when I have GPS turned on.

As I mentioned, my only real concern is that the 9-1-1 location service is active.

Is there some way I can verify that it is working?

It is, take note of what sdrawkcab25 said, turn on GPS you will see the icon when you go in to an app like say Google Maps. You will see a satellite icon, it works.

You wont see it otherwise.
