Default [Q] Maps Draining my Battery - What to Do

I just got my first Android phone and its a Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean. The first two days I was getting around 4-5 hours of battery life and then started reading up on this forum and did a bunch of suggested changes like turning off NFC, location services etc. Also, downloaded Juice Defender and now the battery life is around 7 hours. My usage is very minimal and I was thinking the battery life should be much better than this. When I look into my usage, it seems Google Maps is eating out all my battery life. I have turned off all possible location services to stop this but nothing seems to work.

I have attached some of the relevant screenshots also from my device.

Any advice on how to get this sorted is much appreciated. Thank you.

Isn't there a location setting within the maps app that you should turn off? Or have you already done so?

Go into maps and look in settings if you are logged into "latitude". If so, then log out of it.

I do kill the map. In fact, I make sure to kill all apps after I am done using them but somehow it still pops up. I have a doubt that there might be some other app that is keeping my maps awake but I am unable to detect any.

What you can do is root the phone and then install Titanium Backup and freeze maps. Then it will never be able to start again.
