gps running persistently, can't find culprit
My phone appears to be using the GPS consistently. The crosshair-circle icon keeps flashing on the top, as it does when trying to connect to the GPS satellites. It does this for hours on end.
There seems to have been a lot of app updates recently, so I'm guessing that one of the updates added access to gps, and is constantly polling for the location. Of course, this app doesn't appear in the "running" list. I have killed all apps that are running, and still it keeps blinking.
Here's what's in the Running list:
Media Hub (I keep trying to uninstall this motherf***er)
Wi-Fi sharing manager
I have killed each of these, and it keeps blinking. I have uninstalled other apps that have given me a hard time with GPS before (facebook, okcupid, groupon), and it keeps blinking.
I'm starting to worry that this is actually a phone/OS problem. My battery life drops from 90% to 10% in 4 hours, so it is affecting my battery lifespan as well. Any ideas on how to track this down?
