    Since the most-recent update to Google Maps, it constantly drains my battery, even if I'm not using anything that should cause Maps to run. Anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions?

    Are you backing out of the app, or just hitting the home button?

    The other thing consuming the battery is the Internet browser,everytime I close it it shows it is still running.

    I am backing out and I am using a task manager now to close it.

    I think that's from Google Now accessing the maps app. Try turning off Google Now.

    In settings go to location and uncheck Verizon location.

    Also in maps, go to settings and location and make sure everything is unchecked so it's not constantly updating your location for Latitude.

    I've also seen this. The funny thing about it is I haven't used google maps in about a month.

    Open the Maps open, the go to Settings --> Location Settings.

    Uncheck all location reporting, history, and latitude location sharing services. Unchecking these eliminated the problem on my end.

    I can attest to that, yesterday by noontime I was at 45%. Uninstalled update, at 82% at noontime today.

    Ever use JuiceDefender? I had some battery issues initially with the DNA and then a friend recommended that and it's done wonders along with the task manager. Might be worth checking out.
