    Default Re: "Maps" Using 20% Battery? No matter what!?!

    Also, some have suggested going into ROM Toolbox's Auto-start manager and disabling four of the services (1, 3, 4, and 7, I believe) that relate to automatic location reporting.

    Finally, I haven't tried it myself, but I think that the app "Backitude" will still work with the latest version of Maps and JB/Google Now. Backitude is available in the Play Store. From what I understand, you set location services to "manual" and then Backitude does the updating for you. Backitude can report your location in a more battery efficient way -- e.g., by "stealing" recent locations from LinkedIn check-ins or times you've actually opened maps yourself.
    Sorry, just saw this. I have had Google now disabled since getting the phone :-P
