    How did they manage that? I've had it on for the last hour and seen no change in battery usage over the regular.

    Have you created a location-aware reminder yet? if you have, you'll see the tell-tail triangle icon in the top right next to the bluetooth/battery

    It passively monitors your general location with cell tower triangulation until you near your destination. Only then does GPS go active.
