    Try going into "Running Programs," You may have an app open that is using your location.

    The gps icon flashes if you have programs using location. Depending what apps you have they sometimes do schedule syncs including location information. A few security apps, gaming, and messenging apps do this. Or if you have geotagging turned on your camera pictures.

    When you install a app that does this it will say in the description that its using location. You can always turn it off with the gps button on the power widget.
