Root "My location" tries to use GPS rather than triangulation?

    Hey all, I searched for my problem but couldn't find anything that could fix it. I'm rooted with s-off, leaked 2.15 radio, and installed the leaked "lite" rom last night. When I go to google homepage, "my location" keeps saying that it's "Using GPS". I have GPS turned off. I tried clearing the cache in the browser, but that didn't work. I used Skyraider 2.5.2 before and I had the same issue so I thought it was an issue with that rom, but now I'm having this same issue in the "official" OTA rom. Now, I've removed some bloatware and other stock apps that i didn't want. Has anyone else seen this issue or does anyone know if a certain stock app is needed to get the Google location correctly?

    I have GPS disabled already. I rarely turn it on. I had stock 2.1 with the 2.15 radio before and it worked fine back then. All I did was reflash with the new leak rom. It seems to be a problem only with browsing. I can get current location fairly accurately in maps so I'm very confused.
