    How do I use the HTC weather widget without having my gps on? I think it's draining my battery too quickly.

    You might be able to use network location which does nothing extra other than pull location data from vzw.

    That's odd. It had worked for me. I checked the Google and vzw location services and not the standalone gps.

    When I got my phone, the GPS wasn't working at all. I had to turn off VZW and google location services and only keep the GPS on, then it finally worked. I just set the weather widget to my home location. Wish it worked differently, but oh well.

    Silly question, but what's the difference between the 3 GPS options?

    From what I understand, GPS is standard GPS using a satellite for location. Google uses your data connection to find your location, like the location of the router in regards to the web, but it may show you at the location of the ISP when using WiFi. Verizon uses it's towers to triangulate location. GPS would be the most accurate, while Google should use the least battery, but at the same time sacrificing accuracy. The only thing I'm not sure on is if GPS uses more juice than Verizon's location triangulation, especially if you're on LTE.
