Default [Q] Network Location Locator Battery Issues

I noticed after running better batter stats that Network Location Locator seems to be my biggest battery drainer in fact it seems to be tied to how google now operates as far as updating Google Now cards to show local events and restraunts >>Is there a reason why this app choses to stay awake longer than any other of my partial wakelocks ?

I guess it wants device to report the location to know the back home road
And I trun off the path feature of google now, to see if the battery will be smooth.

That's because it will still collect all data anonymously so I might as well use the cards because they do help and it will still drain the battery regardless ..unless you turn off location services which I personally love and enjoy
