    on iphone 6 i have random (for a few seconds) usually once or twice every 24 hrs, usage of location based alerts under system services, this started in ios 8.2 b1 & persisted ever since with everything after. before nothing ever triggered it except location reminders which i never use, i had one reminder set later this year that was not location based, deleted it anyway so no reminders are active, still does it. reset settings, still does it. reflash ios & check before putting my backup back, still does it..

    i dont care about the privacy panic etc, its more about battery life, which is exceptionally good since 8.3 b3, but id still like to know whats using it & why, NONE of my apps are triggering it

    Do apps show up in the bottom left corner of the lock screen?

    My mistake, it may not have anything to do with that.

    From the iOS 8 support page on location services:

    You mentioned no reminders, do you use the calendar app?
