    My google maps constantly runs in the background (at least thats what the system and app manager tell me)

    Am I the only one with this issue? It seems that no matter how many times I kill google maps with my process/app killer it pops back up and on seconds later?

    Is there a way to permanently keep it from coming online until I want to actually use it?

    Every time i look at my battery use google maps is at like 80% but I dont even use it! I feel like this is heavily affecting my battery life

    Are you signed in to Latitude and sharing your location? That may be the culprit.

    That could be it, I turned it off to see.

    It still shows it up in my Process Manager App everytime I refresh even after I kill it....damn....what gives

    I've been having the same issue as the OP. I do not have Latitude installed, and my GPS is turned off. I use a task killer program, but this still keeps returning. Normally I wouldn't care, but this is responsible for about 20% of my battery's depletion.

    Just got the LG Optimus V (Virgin Mobile) and Maps will not stop no matter what I do. My Girlfriend has the same problem with the Droid Incredible on Verizon.

    Maybe I should just root my phone and delete it, however I do like the navigation, not sure if maps is needed for that.
