    Well, I do apologize if this does not make any sense.

    Recently, on the 1st of this month, I purchased the LG G2 from AT&T. I love the phone but, up until a week ago I've been having problems regarding my GPS. I am one who does not require my GPS much, therefore I disable it. For some god darn reason, it seems to just switch on, on its own. Anytime I connect my earphones, make a call or randomly search my phone, it tends to turn on.

    I have a few apps that I've downloaded, chrome;googledrive;explorer;gmail;googleplay;nova launcher;poweramp;shazam;snapchat;twitch.

    I have disabled anything regarding GPS among these apps yet, my GPS randomly will search for a location. When I see that in my notification, I swipe down, tap on it, it then sends me to Location Access which has Acces to my location on and, GPS satellites checked. I manually turn it off but, the same thing will happen again moments later.. I dont get it and, really do not want to bring it back to the store.

    Figured someone on this site would be willing to help me.

    Thank you in advanced,

    -A

    I think some app you use is turning on location services. I would download a program like Advanced MobileCare, do a PRIVACY SCAN and see what apps are using location services. Uninstall the APP and location services should stay off.
