    I'm using watchdog lite and battery indicator pro, along with the stock manage apps program. I looked at my battery usage a few minutes ago and found maps at 96%. I haven't use the maps app at all, now I did open up places could that have been the culprit?

    I believe there is a bug somewhere between Maps and the battery usage meter that can make maps appear incredibly high. Unless you're burning through battery like crazy today, I'd ignore that.

    You can also download System Panel and see if Maps is using Processor/Data (and see if the green satellite dish/gps symbol is light up in the notification bar).

    Ok cool. I figured but just wanted to double check. Now I've had really good battery life on my phone, unless like now when I'm on here lol. I was looking at juice defender but I don't wanna have managing software fighting each other. Lol.
