Default Gps Indicator Always On

Hey guys,

I have a rooted thrill, and when I leave my gps turned on, there is always an indicator at the top of the screen like it is always in use. Anyone having a similar issue with their phone, or have any ideas why it is always running? It seems like it effects my battery life as well. Thanks

Sounds like you have an App running in the background that continually asks for location info.
