My gps keeps popping up that its on in the notification bar and then goes away in about 5-10 seconds. It is draining my battery, i have rebooted many times to no avail. Anybody else having this problem? Screenshot below, almost 4hrs on!!!!

yeah likely carrier IQ.

OP, go to settings>>apps>>running apps>> and I believe it's "android system" or something and inside you should find "carrier IQ" or something similar tell it to stop running that and carrier IQ will be disabled until you reboot. your gps will stop turning on and your battery life will improve significantly.
