hi

since 5.0 install on my nexus4 i've noticed the 'gps active' icon in the top left for a brief moment after unlocking the phone.

gps is turned completely off and 'recent location requests' lists google contacts and google dialler.

'location services' lists google location reporting, however location reporting is disabled.

any ideas why this is happening?

many thanks

Maybe the phone automatically checks its location upon wakeup to support tasks that the user can't control, such as the ability to report its location to the network to receive calls and texts from the right cell site.

I get this all the time... for me I think it's my weather widget. Lots of things look at location, and often it is Google Play Services that provides them.
