    Default GPS turning on by itself

    Just like the title says. I pull down the notification tray and GPS is turned on. I turn it off and later it's back on.

    Since removing the stock weather widget it hasn't happened again.

    The weather widget wants up to date info the only way it can be accurate is the gps location

    Option to manually tell location for weather. Should solve your problem. GPS never turns on by its self for me.

    I think I was accidentally hitting the button in the notification tray when knocking off the display

    Hi, i am using a note 3, and i face the same problem of gps switching on by itself.
    I have performed factory resets several times, but to no avail.

    anti virus/ spyware scanners could not help me either.
    This stops only when i switch off my data plan connection.
    I have disabled all widgets etc. removed all programs, but it doesnt help.

    Turning location access off, only to find that it turns itself back on.

    Appreciate any ideas. Regards
