Searching for GPS
Noticed that my S5 had been searching for GPS a lot lately. When I wake the phone up I notice the GPS symbol blinking at the top of the phone, within the notification drawer it says searching for GPS. Doors this for a few seconds then vanishes.
Anyone experience this on their handset?

Re: Searching for GPS
I noticed that mine was constantly bringing up a notification that said "searching using GPS". I decided to check my battery usage stats since that was the reason I even started caring. My battery had completely drained in the night even thought it was fully charged when I went to bed. The culprit...Facebook. I don't know why it would have to collect location data every 10 seconds but that's what it seemed to be doing. I selected "force stop" and the problem went away.
