    I really don't care if my phone is "Searching for Location" or "Location Found". I get these notices, oh, several hundred times a day. How do I turn it off? I want the location services left on but I don't need these notices.

    HELP!?

    Thanks!

    If you tap the notification, which app does it bring you to?

    Go into settings / apps. Look for google play services (probably under the "all" tab.) Tap it and turn off "show notifications".

    If that works, great. If not, turn it back on and report back.

    Well I just tried that. Currently I have a "searching for location" notification going on that I cannot clear out. I'll leave them blocked for not but I have a feeling its not going to make a difference.

    Try long-pressing on the notification. I believe that should change the notification to the name of the app that is creating the notification, plus a small "i" control that you can tap to turn off notifications for whichever app is causing the notification.

    Also, what setting do you have for location services? High accuracy? Try changing it to one of the others?

    I was having this on my Turbo 2, and long pressed on the notification, and it was GPS Notifier.

    I toggled all the notification settings for it to off, and haven't seen it back, but it's been a few minutes only since I've changed settings .

    Hope this helps, good luck.

    Any update? Did long-pressing the notification help?

    I tried, and it didn't work. For some stupid reason you can't turn off notifications for "Motorola GPS Notifier." Good thing those notifications don't bother me too much.
