    Hi ace, welcome aboard!

    AFAIK, there's nothing native to the phone that will let you hide the icon. It's possible that option is built into a custom ROM (if you're rooted/wanting to root), but don't think I've see that as an option before. So outside of altering code/system .apk I think you might be stuck with it. Hopefully I'm wrong though and someone has a work around

    My GPS is on but I don't have any blinking icon. Which carrier are you using?

    Jeffrey brings up a good point. That icon shouldn't be showing unless it's being used by an app (such as navigation for example). If it's blinking, it means it's trying to lock on to a satelite and will turn solid when it's locked on.

    Re: GPS notification

    Sort of. I don't think there's a way to automatically toggle it for you (although Tasker app might have that ability if you want to look into it). However, if you leave gps on it isn't actively using it the whole time. Those radios will sit idle until you have an app that utilizes it, in which it will connect. That's my understanding of it.

    This is exactly how it works. GPS isn't “constantly on" in the sense of always consuming resources.
