    Hello!

    I've had my series 2 for just over a week and it's been fine... except for today I've noticed the location arrow was stuck on. It's the MC&D that's causing it to be on. I've tried turning on and off the toggle and location services and rebooting and hard resetting both the iPhone and Watch. The little arrow keeps coming back?!!! What can I do? Anybody else have this problem?

    Why is it a problem if the arrow is there? At least you know the reason behind the arrow being there. It will eventually go away on its own. But if you keep toggling it, restarting devices and what not, its starting over what its trying to accomplish.

    But why did the arrow start staying on now over a week later when it never did this before?! What is it trying to accomplish? I've already calibrated and gone on a few runs. Hmmmm

    Is the workout app running in the background on your watch? Is it in the dock?

    No I force closed it. I'm going to try resetting the Calibration data and going for a run with the iPhone and watch and see if that makes it go away.

    I found the culprit!!! It was the run keeper app. After a back up and restore my problem went away.

    I started monkeying (using) with the runkeeper app and lo and behold after awhile the motion calibration and distance was stuck on again.

    I am imagining it's a big for everyone but most people probably don't notice it because they don't have the toggle on that makes systems services show the arrow in the status bar.

    Anybody out there who uses run keeper with the latest versions of the app and iOS want to check? I bet your motion calibration and distance is stuck on too. The only way to get rid of it is to do a backup and restore. No more run keeper for me. I'll stick to Nike. I really wanted to use RK for my watch but not if it has this bug on my iPhone!

    Glad you found it. I wonder if its a bug with run keeper that is causing motion calibration and distance to be running.
