How: control how 'system UI' uses the GPS
I noticed while indoors recently that my N7 was searching for GPS continuously for over an hour which I assume was draining my battery faster...
I assumed that it would timeout but it never stopped until I went outside.
I long-pressed on the notification tray item and selected App Info to see which app was the offending party and found that it was 'system UI' with a jelly bean icon...
Is there any way to set a timeout or figure out why it is searching for GPS?
Are there any apps to control this annoying behavior?
If there isn't a remedy, how do I change the permission to force the system to ask for permission to access the GPS?
