How to disable Standalone GPS warning

    Ever since I got the Gingerbread update (4.08), I've been having a problem when I turn on the GPS. Each time I enable GPS, I get the warning message:

    Standalone GPS Services
    By selecting "Standalone GPS Services", you are enabling access to all location information...

    This didn't happen before with Froyo, and I can't seem to find a way to turn this off. I've seen the warning that gives a "Never warn again", and selected that, but it doesn't help with this particular message. This seems to happen whether I turn it on through a 3rd party widget (Widgetzoid) or through the phone's own settings.

    Anyone have an idea why this happens, and whether there's a way to get rid of it?

    Hmm, nobody has any idea? Or was this covered in another thread already? I did a search but couldn't seem to find a thread on the same problem.

    It has been covered before but I don't remember what the answer was if there was one. I'll look around when I get a chance.

    sdrawkcab25, if you can find the info on this, I'd really appreciate it. I've only found one other mention of this, in the main GB update thread. But the poster there seems to think this problem was fixed in the 4.08 update. Unfortunately, I'm already on 4.08 and still have the problem.
