    I need to find an application I can use if I already know where I am and don't really want the battery to waste itself on GPS. Is there an application that either doesn't use the GPS, or has some sort of toggle?

    Yep, Google maps. I have my GPS turned off and I can still use the program.

    Just turn the GPS off and it will locate you closest to the cell tower you are by or not at all.

    Settings > Locations and Security > uncheck "Use GPS satellites."

    From the homescreen, not within Google Maps.

    That's the answer I was looking for.
