    Do you have the weatherbug app installed? I was having the same problem when I checked the weather, then exited out of the app and the gps logo was still on. I emailed the weatherbug people about it and they said it is a glitch with the phone software that shows the icon although it isn't actually doing anything.

    No weather bug app. I haven't left the icon to idle so I can't tell if it has been a battery drainer or not...maybe i'll try it...
