    I had the day off today and I came across this. I looked into this in the past and everyone always stated it requires root. I didn't believe it would work but had to try. I tested it and works pretty freakin sweet!

    Turn GPS on when in Google Maps, turn it off otherwise (No Root!) | AutoApps Forums

    I'd be surprised if you saw much difference in battery consumption. The system controls GPS already.

    You may be right. But it's cool that it's even possible and I always turn gps off when I'm not using it.

    I, also, leave the gps ON all of the time although I do deny Google access to storing history/location.

    That does not seem to interfere with my periodic use of google maps. That way I don't have to futz to turn it on for geo-tagging photos nor for my TRACKing program (Nogago) for hiking, bike rides and x-country ski trips. Oh, yes and the Accuweather app.
