    Just be sure to close the app

    Double click the home button, find the app, hold it till it giggles and click the minus sign

    well that would just DELETE the app - why would i do that? the app is great, i just need to let it know when to stop using my battery to monitor my travels on a route i know (when it's gotten me back to I5, i KNOW the rest of the way home)

    He's talking about the suspended app task bar that comes up at the bottom of the screen when one double clicks the home button, not the X in a circle that shows up when one holds down an app icon on the main display.  Pressing the minus in a circle at the upper left of the icon just removes the app from the background.

     

    It is necessary to remove the app from the background task bar to fully turn off GPS because some apps keep GPS on line even when they are in the background.

     

    Remember, X in a circle comes from clicking and holding an app icon on the main display--pressing the X will offer to remove the app from the iPhone.  The minus sign in a circle comes about when holding an app icon in the background task bar.

    Tap on the navigation screen and tap on the "end" button on the top left corner.
