Hi Guys,

I've just noticed today that I have a new symbol on my home screen and can't find anywhere that says what it is. It looks like a satellite dish pointing up and to the right, transmitting green lines that are flashing. I've not seen it before, anyone know what it is and how to turn it off???

That will be your GPS receiver. You can turn it off by going to your Home screen, pressing Menu, Settings, Location, Use GPS Satellites. Pressing on this setting toggles the GPS on or off.

That setting just allows applications to use the GPS receiver.
You must have been running an app which was using the GPS.
