GPS NOT turning off

    So I've been through a few Hero's for a couple of different reasons, and I keep running into this same problem. The issue is as I'm using an application other than google maps, the gps receiver continues to search and flash active after exiting the application. The only way that I can seem to get it do deactivate is go into the google maps app and then exit. This happens when I use ANY app that utilizes location aside from google maps. Thoughts/Experiences>?

    Use the GPS on/off settings toggle HTC widget. Works wonders for me.

    Ok, so just to confirm. The gps isn't actually on, its just the icon?
