    I keep my GPS on and use maps almost daily and my battery life does not suffer....Just a suggestion, maybe use the BACK key instead of the HOME key to exit the Maps app.

    A free app in the app store. It shows battery / usage info.

    Yeah I don't think the gps is really used unless you're in an app which requires it.

    However, simply having it turned on DOES effect the battery life.

    I did read that.

    What time do you have spare parts checking? Since last charge or what?

    Also just because you don't use maps does not mean that the system doesn't open it. I'm not am expert on spare parts but I'm quite sure the gps reading you are getting from it is not doing a thing to your battery. Just keep it off and you'll be fine.
