    Subject says it all... No apps running, already shut off and restarted, no effect. Little gps icon is active in upper rt corner, and no apps should be using it. Plus, I'm out of data now. How can I reset the GPS or iPad?

    Figured it out!


    Star Trek movie app was using it like the world was coming to an end. Required location services to be on but was lightweight until today. Must have been a new update. Nuisance app, too. Was annoyingly light on info about upcoming movie and just now costed me $10+ in overage fees.

    Hollywood is increasingly costing me money and time. To make matters worse, movie previews look boring to me, just more angst filled "end of the universe" BS.

    Yawn! :(
