    Recently I have been having awful battery drainage and I looked at my battery stats and seen MapServiceSamsung at 20% what is this? Why is it draining my battery? Is there anyway to fix this ?

    It's to do with bluetooth, do you use bluetooth often?

    Never? That is why I am so confused. I do have goSms installed.

    That's my theory out of the window then :eek:

    I did read somewhere about a link between restoring sms's and mapservicesamsung.

    Are you rooted or able to freeze/disable mapservicesamsung?

    If not rooted, try force closing it in manage applications and see how the battery goes. mapservicesamsung shouldn't restart unless bluetooth is turned on or you restart your phone.
    That may only be a temporary fix though but see if it helps. If it continues to cause a drain, another app, possibly gosms may be using it, and causing mapservicesamsung to restart.
