How do i stop the searching for GPS icon from popping up
Almost every time i look at my phone i see a GPS icon on top of my screen... does it eat my battery while working constantly like this? is my droid defected?
if you dont know what im talking about, its a little satellite looking thing on your notifications bar with a couple green blinking bars
i dont want to turn GPS off because i want the weather and my location updated periodically (NOT CONSTANTLY!)
is there a way to remove it from there?

it's probably just a coincidence that it's on when you look, even if you leave location services on, it should only be running when something calls for location information.
what weather app are you using? for mine, i have it set to update every 3 hours, i usually only see the gps icon pop up when i open maps or something

uninstalled weather channel, installed weather bug and set updates for every 4 hours ... no more gps icon ... maybe its the app maybe not, but i have not moved an inch since then ... will let you know if gps pops up for no reason again
weather bug is a great app with only 1X1 space and shows you 10 day forcast

If you use weather widget donate you can set it up do when its pressed it will open weather bug. The only bad thing is you have to hit it once to open the 3 day forecast then hit it again to bring up weather bug.
