Noticed this for the first time today when I ran EveryTrail Pro. I have not noticed it in any other apps yet. Anyone know what this additional icon right up against the WiFi icon is?

Did you look on their website?

From their FAQ:
If you have upgraded to OS 4.0 and the app is working for you, then you have an app that will run in the background. You can test this by closing the app, and you should see an indicator next to the battery indicator to let you know that GPS is being used.

Actually now that I look at your pic it's not next to the battery indicator. But I think it's GPS.

Must be Photoshopped. Either that, or SkyNet is finally becoming self-aware.

also, if I open Navico (Japan Navigation Program) or Maps, I do not get that icon, only the arrowhead.

Yes, I read the post :p

I didn't know if an app could use their own indicator to show GPS rather than Apple's arrow for "Location Services". It looks like a little satellite to me, but who knows.
:confused:

GPS signal strength indicator

in the app, goto: more/settings/GPS Settings. Scroll down and you will see the toggle for the signal.
