    When I turn on my GPS location, why does its icon not show in top of screen (sorry can't remember the correct terminology)?

    It normally does not show up unless it's actively being used for locating.

    Ok, so when its on, and you don't know it's on, it only shows the icon when locating....highly weird!?
    And when I turn it on, and use Strava, why do I not see it? It should be locating?

    I don't see why it's weird when that's hoe Android has handled it since the original Galaxy S. It being turned on doesn't mean it's being used. It just activates the phone's capability to use the GPS chip. I have no idea what kind of app Strava is so I can't answer that.
