    I don't know how to take a screen shot, but what does this mean?

    It looks like a reticle or scope icon with one slash through it.

    It's the GPS indicator. The slash through it means you have GPS turned off.

    Disable what? The indicator? It's pretty important...turning the GPS on drains you battery quickly...but you need it on if you want to use any of the navigation features.

    This thing annoys me as well. I don't need an icon/indicator telling me my GPS is off. If you want to tell me GPS is off, simply removing the GPS icon from the notification bar is all I need. I really wish I could turn this off.

    I'm betting you can replace the disabled icon with what is effectively no icon / a blank icon. If it isn't already in the market it seems almost trivial to do on a rooted phone.

    I had a co-worker fight is moto cliq for a week to change the clock's background color - lol.
