With Jellybean upgrade my phone is always searching for location. Wondering if this draining my battery faster. Is there a easy fix without turning it off?

Do you have an application installed that uses the GPS?  The only time my Nexus searches for a GPS lock is when some of the apps I have installed are programmed to access my location.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
