    I just thought I would ask you guys. For the past few weeks, and since before they turned on LTE in my area. I have noticed Location Services never turns off. The indicator on the status bar never turns off.

    I have went through the list of Apps that use location services. I have disable some... but it never goes off. If I turn off location services completely. Then Yes, the indicator goes away.

    Has anyone else noticed this...?

    Have you tried power cycling to see? Also turn all of them off and then slowly add them back on to see which one is the culprit.

    I figured it out... Cobra had a update the other week for iRadar. It allows my phone to work with my radar detector in my car. Thanks Rugaby. That helped me figure it out. Unfortunately I can't find a way to contact the App Developer.

    No problem
    Go back to the App Store and leave feedback for the app itself.

    I did Vols.., I just turn it on before I get in the car.
    I'm wondering if I should delete the App and Re-install it. I may do that in a few minutes.

    That will often help like Vols said try just turning location services off for that app.

    I noticed this with a lot of the apps. There is no way to contact the developers. Why did Apple remove this?

    There's no way to do it within the app? Also you can go to the App Store & leave a review or click on app support.

    A few of the apps in the app store, when you click on developer info up come additional apps. And, what does a review do, if I need support? And, nothing in the apps either.

    Deleting the App and Re-installing seems to have fixed my issue. Since Cobra works with my Radar detector I need it to work with location services on. They send alerts based off of other Cobra operators locations.

    by the way I highly recommend iRadar and the companion App that comes with it....

    When you click on review there's an app support icon right there.

    Yeah they do.. and it takes you to their very nice webpage. :)
    I finally found a support portal on their website, and it's closed. Must work like a Forum or something.
    But it was offline regardless.

    Thanks, I did not know that. Why did Apple hide that?
