    I have a vzw 8130. Will enableing gps reduce battery life? or does the gps receiver only work while using a gps app like bbmaps?

    Your GPS was always working in 911 mode. There's no way to fully turn it off. I don't think simply enabling the GPS for BBMaps will reduce battery life. Using the GPS with BBMaps will certainly cause you to deplete your battery more rapidly than if the phone was left in standby, just because you're using it.
