    Default Location services icon staying on

    All day the location services icon has been on steady, this hasn't happened to me before today. Recently the Weather Channel app was updated yesterday and I downloaded Talon, and that icon has been killing the battery. The icon never stayed on before those apps were installed/updated

    One or the other may be stuck polling your location. As for how to fix it I am not sure.

    I will have to start deleting apps to find the culprit of this issue. TWC maybe first since the latest update really puts my exact location every second. Thanks for the reply

    Well, you said it started after the two apps were updated/installed. Are you going to start with them?

    I removed the Weather Channel and that issue stopped

    Good to hear. Have you emailed them to let them know about your issue?
