    the symbol is the indicator that your GOS is set to "Location - ON"

    this means that programs can use it when ever.

    if you want the icon to go away effectively turning off the gps do the following:

    options - advanced - gps - gps services - 911 only

    note that this will turn your gps off and when you use a program that requires gps you will always have to watch for the dialogue box that will pop up and ask for permission to use gps.
