    In my opinion there is no reason to turn off GPS. GPS is only running when you launch an app that uses location like driving navigation. When you see the satellite icon in the notification area then GPS is running, if you dont see the icon then GPS is not running and not using your battery.

    A couple of days ago I had the sat icon running when I wasn't using any app that required it. I checked my settings and GPS was turned off but the icon was still there. I never did figure out what caused it. I had to reboot to clear it.



    To the OP, I use the power widget to control WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and Sync.

    Use the Power Control Widget. To put the Widget on a home screen long-touch the home screen and follow the prompts.



    The 5 icons on the Widget are WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync and Brightness, respectively.



    Even the manual and the internal phone menus suggest turning off GPS when not in use.
