    The last week or so, I've noticed that the GPS on my phone starts trying to locate where I am without a program prompting it to do anything. I had just left the gps on, so it would be ready for maps/etc. Is there a way to tell which program is accessing it? My understanding was that you could leave the gps switched on with the droid x because it would not actually use it, unless a program called for it. TIA

    weather apps could be opening it, also anytime you go to google websearch it will pull your location. A LOT of apps and websites pull your gps location now.
