Default CNET app uses 15% of my battery ?

It says CPU total 1min 50 seconds but why is it saying the GPS is on for it for over 3 hours ? I force close it and it still says its eating up my battery. Android OS and everything else minus screen is below CNET in percentage. Other than turn GPS off what can I do ? I need GPS on for other apps

Don't use cnet. Some apps are poorly written and there isn't a think you can do. Sounds like this is one. Read the cnet reviews, you're not the only one with this problem.

Knowing CNET, it's not bad coding, it's intentional.

Can you switch to 'battery saving' location mapping? Most apps (besides navigation) don't really require GPS level accuracy.

(If you are rooted, you can always just prevent the cnet app from using GPS - AppOps or Xprivacy)
