Has anyone else noticed that since Catalina, Maps is now continually triggering Location Services, even if the app hasn't been used? The little directional arrow in the menu bar keeps appearing and disappearing about every 30 seconds.
Yes, I understand that. However, in my case, maps is checking the location every 45 seconds and the location services arrow stays in the menu bar for 10 seconds each time.Yes, but the 'find my' function needs to know where you, are that's why maps checks your location from time to time.
For anyone interested, I just checked this; System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy tab > Maps (toggled to "Enabled"). I then opened the Maps app and the behavior is still present - location services is launched every 45 seconds and the location arrow is showing up in the Menubar for 10 seconds each time. I toggled Maps off in location services.. my MBA doesn't need to have Maps locations enabled anyway.
