    Is there a way to turn off the "warning" you get about standalone GPS?

    I've turned the GPS off, but it comes back on and I get the annoying message throughout the day.

    Generally it only warns you if you have an active service on such as VZW Location or the Standalone GPS services set to "on". I only toggle the Standalone service on when I need driving directions. I never use VZW.

    Go to menu>settings>location and make sure everything is turned off. Now I personally keep the Google service on since it doesn't bother me with a warning and I can still keep track of family using the Latitude app and get relative locations for any searches I am doing.

    Hope this helps!
