Re: GPS Issues
Yes, I have GPS enabled all of the time. But on my old Thunderbolt, GPS only seemed to kick on if I had opened an app that was using it (updating weather, using G-Maps, etc). And in the first few weeks of having my S4 it was similar to the Tb. In the last month, it's almost every single time I look at my phone (pull it out of "sleep"), it seems to be checking for my GPS location. If it's a specific app (like I know that GoogleNow does this) that's always searching for my location, and imho I feel it only needs to know my location if I open the app, and I'm content with waiting those few extra seconds for it to update then, then I can tweak the settings on that one app. But since I'm not sure why my phone is always searching for GPS, I don't know what to tweak. So my question then, is if there is a way to find out which app/setting is telling my phone to keep such close tabs on me, or if this is just a Verizon S4 issue that everyone has?
