Maybe. I've never heard of GPS running when location services is off. There's only one place to turn off location in settings, and if it off, it should be off. Strange.

if you go to location settings, press google location reporting, do you have google location reporting and location history off as well?

But maps and Waze will drop the battery fast while in use. After they hibernate... Its other apps using location.
