    Default Keep GPS Connected

    Does anyone know of an app that will keep the GPS connected to satellites while the app is in the background? Google Navigation will do this, but what if I don't have a route and just want the GPS on for location purposes (like Google+ Locations)?

    I used an app named GPSTest by Mike Lockwood for this ... I think the same app is now in Play Store by the dev BARBEAUDEV.

    Its a simple app, but like all GPS apps which let GPS running, even it will use some battery power.

    FYI, in case anyone is interested, I settled on Ulysse Speedometer. It will run in the background and keep the GPS connected.
