Default [Q] new icon?

Running VERY well on my KitKat rooted Maxx, but I have a new icon showing up somewhat randomly. It's white/grey, upside down teardrop with a blackdot in it. Warren Robinet couldn't help me (obscure 'dot' reference humor)

fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

Isn't that a location pin, like you would see on Google Maps? I took this symbol to mean that the GPS was on, and active, when this little location pin appears

Yeah, pretty sure it's the new icon for active GPS.

Yes that's the new icon indication for active Gps instead of the blinking dot.

I just saw the same icon but it was a Google Now notification. Had nothing to do with Location because it was about my favorite football team on the opposite side of the country from me.

It's the active Gps notification. Google now does occasionally trigger it to check where you're at for weather/sports/nearby events/etc. Open maps. It'll stay there permanently til you exit.
