OK so I've had my Nexus 4 for about a week (5 days) and I love it so far. Only thing is my battery keeps getting used by maps. For instance, right now it shows 1 minute gps use, 12 minutes awake time used by maps. I havent even opened maps today. This has happened for a few days but today its showing 20% battery drain! I've used my phone a total of about 1 hour today but screen is around 30%.
I looked in location access and everything is on.....Its always been on ever since I got my Gnex on Verizon, since gps no longer is supposed to be used unless an app is calling for it. I've turned off anything I can find in google Now that might use location services but it hasnt seemed to help. I also turned off the 'report location from this device' setting in maps.
Anyone else having this issue or know how to fix it? I'd like to not have to keep my gps off since its been a non-issue since ics launched.

Settings > Google > Maps and Latitude

Uncheck " report from this device"
Set " Location reporting" to " not updated"
Uncheck " Enable location sharing"
Uncheck "Automatic check-ins"

Google Now shouldn't be effected.

Just wanted to say thanks... this worked for me. Maps was KILLING the battery on my Nexus 4. Now the only thing really hurting it is me playing Need for Speed. :)
