    Default Moto X: Location icon

    Just curious if the location icon is suppose to stay on in the status bar. On my Samsung it was not there unless I was using navigation ?

    Yeah the location icon is only supposed to be on the status bar when the GPS is in use. Sometimes apps in the background use the GPS but I've never encountered a phone that has it all the time. Especially a Moto X.

    I know it's a painful process, but I would try doing a factory reset.

    Did you recently run an app that required GPS?

    I agree it's definitely an app running the GPS. How long as it been happening?

    It's a running app. Happens to me. I have to go into the running apps menu and force stop the culprit
