    for some reason every few minutes i get the location icon flashing up in the top left of the notification bar. there is always the location icon on the right hand side which i believe is normal but i've never had the one on the left before.

    any ideas?

    it is actively checking what your location is to update location based services.

    I think the only way to turn it off would be to turn off location services. If you go into settings you can turn it off.

    I notice my phone doing that when I had the command center widget running

    This happened to me when I had the Moto Assist on for Driving and Home.

    I have the command center on with those other two off, and I barely see the location symbol.

    The command center will only check location if you have the 'current location' setting on, I keep mine off unless its needed. Also you definitely can't turn off location notifications without disabling locations all together. Make sure that its not a third party app, I had the app my tracks and it ran all day, used more battery than the screen.

    +1 for the Trip Advisor bug. Was trying to find out which app.
