    Does anyone else have this service running in background? I never used to have it but lately its always there, even if i disable it, its starts up again and runs all day.

    I have been into maps and disabled locale (thought that may be it) but nothing its still always starting up.

    What is this service?

    Thanks for any advice in advance :)

    I assume it's part of google latitude, but I've only had my N1 for 3 weeks so I'm just as stumped.

    LocationFriendService starts, runs for 10-15 seconds, then disappears and comes back around 30 seconds later and repeats this forever... (times approximate). WTH? :thinking:

    Has anyone figured out what exactly this LocationFriendService is, and how to stop it? Been googling for an hour trying to get a straight answer. I already have latitude disabled. Restarted phone a couple times, still disabled, but the service keeps doing this. :mad:
