    Is there anyway to disable the blinking green light that flashes when GPS is enabled? It's more of an annoyance then anything else, just curious if there is a way to turn that off while I leave GPS using programs on.

    I guess if not I could always draw a small black dot over the top of it! haha

    Your Green light is blinking for some other reason, GPS does not blink the light.

    Green light is either a Text Message or GMAIL

    I recently downloaded GPS Tracker and started noticing it after that. I suppose it could be from other things and maybe I just started paying attention recently?

    Anyway to disable the blinking light regardless? Now it is all I see when the phone is just laying on my desk! haha

    I don't use GPS Tracker, but if you noticed it after you installed it then that might be whats causing it. Check the settings of that application. As far as I know there is no way to disable the little green light.

    I find that notification blink annoying as well. Any chance of us being able to disable it when we get 2.1?
