GPS Symbol staying on

by eric.schwartz    Aug 3, 2012, 4:29 PM

Hi everyone,

I have a Verizon 32 gig white Galaxy S3 and I absolutely love it. The only thing in question is my GPS Symbol in the top left hand corner of my notification screen will sometimes constantly stay on for a while without automatically turning itself off (switching back to the regular target looking symbol). It doesn't seem as though this is draining my battery exponentially, however it is weird/annoying. It happens every so often. What I have done so far to try and remedy the problem is go into settings, application manager, all applications, and disabled all of the factory stock Samsung framework applications and Kias/Samsung cloud syncing apps. At first, I thought that had fixed the issue, but then the same thing happened this afternoon for about 15-20 minutes. I'm not sure at all what is going on here. At first I though it was just an application in the back ground however every app is shut down, and again this does not always happen. Has anyone ever seen this before or have any idea of what's going on here? Again, My phone is functioning perfectly fine. There are no issues with it at all. Any help would be appreciated though. Thank you.
