    is there any way to remove the bulls-eye target icon from the dock? I've made the selection that its indicating, and i know that i made that decision... it seems redundant to continue to tell me that i'm sharing my location AND it takes up space that i want to use for other apps..

    Yeah, interested in this, even if I have to root.

    All my old VZW phones had that stupid thing too though.

    It is probably some weird FCC requirement. Besides, can you imagine the uproar if people didn't know it was on and it was?

    you have to edit /system/framework/services.jar and set the width to zero. Talk to your favorite ROM cooker about it.

    I'm going to assume that's a root option.

    GPS is also a part of the E-911 system. All US cell phones for the last, I don't remember how many, years have had GPS in them for 911 location.

    Even if you turn GPS off it will still activate for 911, that's why the icon is there, so people can tell if their GPS is on or not.

    If you want it gone, Im a guessing gbhill has the answer.

    I don't think people want to turn it off, they just don't want the icon shown.
