    Actually I only use "Google Location Services". That one seems to do what is needed (except for navigation). But honestlyIi remember a thread a while back that went into this. A few people swore that the GPS uses nothing unless it's called for. So according to them (and they seemed like they knew what they were talking about), if you leave it on it won't use any power until you call for it. Also they said if you don't see the icon in the task bar it's not using any resources. I usually leave it on and haven't noticed and excessive drain. But that was with my old phone. Haven't tried it with this one yet.

    I always leave GPS on in the settings. In my opinion, unless a program is calling for GPS and you see that little target-looking icon in the notification bar, it's not using any resources, including battery life.
