    On many days I've been having Google Maps use up about 20% of my battery.

    I don't even turn on my Location unless if I need navigation but that's maybe once a week at most.

    Anyone know why this is happening?

    I've turned off google location services.

    My battery only lasts 3 to 4 hours of SOT at the moment. Apparently it should be lasting a minimum of 4-5 hours.

    I use citymapper whenever I can. It's much better.

    Google Maps is a big drain for me too on the Priv. It also rarely shows the proper location and takes over 30 seconds to lock on a location before updating on turn-by turn directions.

    Google Maps works flawlessly for me... It has the cool feature of where I parked my car in Google Now which I found yesterday, been accurate past 2 days. Maps doesn't drain my battery either probably used it for about an hour yesterday and shed off about 10-15%... was similar for my Z30 + BlackBerry Maps

    I should have been more clear. I don't even open the app and it uses 20%of my battery

    That's a very common thing for various apps to do, and it's not only rude and a severe privacy problem it murders battery life too.
