I turned off spotlight suggestions but its still there..??go to the system location services where iad is etc & look at it..probably going to be spotlight suggestions
Not an outline. Never had it show up unless I was using something with location services..just happened after ios8 updateIt is just an outline? I have a constant outline up there. If it's the outline it means some app can use your location even when you're not using it. You can see which one in Settings.
Bluetooth off..this going to drive me crazy!! All the settings are the same in location services from when I had ios7..so something new must be triggering thisUpgrades turn bluetooth on by default. I think iBeacon is what is using location services. Turn off Bluetooth and odds are it will go away.
Look for something in the location services settings with an outline triangle - that's what's using your location.Bluetooth off..this going to drive me crazy!! All the settings are the same in location services from when I had ios7..so something new must be triggering this
Are any of the arrows in Settings purple? That's the active one, if so.

Mine is a white arrow to the left of the battery %. Is this on now for everyone with IOS8 that has location services turned on?I think the hollow arrow in the top bar just means to have location service set to on. I'm guessing that's new for iOS 8 since I've always had location services on but have never seen this.
I just did as you said but the arrow is still there? I have no clue what wifi networking is either..lolI've been trying to figure this out as well and it's driving me nuts!
Edit: I just tried unchecking Wi-Fi Networking and it went away. Call me a moron, but what's Wi-Fi Networking??
Purple arrow --the description says icon will appear next to item when it was "recently" used.It's Google then. It uses your location when you're not using it. Unfortunately, there's no middle setting and it's either on all the time or off completely.
That sucks if this is the caseI have had the same problem since updating to iOS 8. I've also noticed that apps are showing up under the Battery Percentage that I haven't run.
Doing some testing I've found that apps can use now location services when not running, even if they are set to disabled in the "Background App Refresh" screen.
I've had a number of apps randomly launch as use Location Services. The worst being "Yahoo! Weather" which put up a permanent geofence even after I launched it, disabled current location and then killed the app. It was using 6% of my battery before I disabled it's access to Location Service data.
The only way to stop apps from running in the background to grab location data is to set them to "Never" use Location Services. That effectively breaks a number of apps which need Location Services enabled to work.
I have no idea why Apple made this change. It used to be easy to prevent an app from running in the background, simply disable it in the "Background App Refresh" screen, now it needs to be disabled both there and in the "Location Services" screen.
I don't know what Apple was thinking making this change.
YOU NAILED IT!! I just turned it off and you were correct. Google was using it even when not using google..that sucks..now I turned it off and google now won't work without it.Just turn off Location for Google for a sec and see if the arrow in the status bar goes away.
Yeah I remember that being the main reason I stopped using the Google app cause the the location was always on.YOU NAILED IT!! I just turned it off and you were correct. Google was using it even when not using google..that sucks..now I turned it off and google now won't work without it.
That being said..I appreciate all the help here
