    I think that something is using my GPS when my phone is in standby with the screen off.

    Does anyone know of an application that will log what applications are using my GPS device?

    Thanks

    "Spare parts" can do that I believe.

    I'm gonna get dinged for plugging my apps all over the place, but I just published one called "Andee Exposed". It won't do what you are asking for directly, I'm not sure how that could be done, but you can see what apps are running, and what apps have permission to use the GPS. From there you should be able to nail the culprit app.

    Yes it can display a history of GPS battery usage. You get percentages for each application that used it.
