Maps eating up battery

I've noticed recently my battery draining faster than normal with the Maps app consuming about 25%. I seldom use Maps, so I don't know if this is a result of its latest update or another app is calling it up. All I know is that it didn't use to happen.

Is there any way to keep Maps from running automatically like this?

EDIT: I think it might have something to do with enabling Google Location Service when I installed the Maps update. I've disabled it now, so we'll see if that makes a difference.

What is latitude? I had Google location service turned on in settings. I don't use GPS.

(EDIT: I found Latitude -- no, don't use it.)

I also was traveling that day so I was on LTE instead of wifi. Maybe that had something to do with it also.
