The gps is turned off, but the gps icon is visible on the notification bar... I had to restart my phone twice today to solve it... And after restarting the problem was gone... But it seems to come up often

No issues here with GPS and I'm on the Oreo Beta, working fine for me with Google maps navigation.
I have the same problem, GPS icon is always on notification bar, even if you torn off the GPS, icon remain there. Please fix or give us a solution. Thanks
Ok, the bug is from this beta version, after reboot GPS icon gone, if you start any application what use GPS, icon do not disappear after locate you even if you close that application, like remain in cache. Is there even if GPS is not in use.
I'm on the Oreo Beta and I can't recreate this issue, I use GPS a lot for navigation, with Google maps GPS location icon comes on and disappears again when I exit the app. Same happens with copilot, exit it, location icon disappears as expected.
No it doesn't, i closed the app, removed everything from the recent apps, forced the Google map to stop... But only restarting the phone seems to fix the issue

After reboot when is gone the GPS icon try to open any application what use GPS (GMap or any other program), and please let me know if the GPS icon gone after you close the GMap or other application. There is a but i think on notification and keep that icon there even if GPS is stop.
