Default Location always running in App Ops for Android system and Google services.

Since updating to kit kat when I look in App Ops Android System and Google Services always has 'location' as 'running'.

I always have gps and wireless network location off though in app ops it's always showing those two as running.

What's the cause?
God created turbo lag to give V8s a chance.

Go to setting-general-account-google-location and disable it.

It is disabled. My point was that even though it's disabled android and Google is constantly looking for my location hence the battery drain by android os and Google services that people are always talking about.

Same here. I found annoying to see that. The Google play services for location is always running at the background although u have turned off all the location service from user interface.
