I am looking for some help, I have a Blackberry Tour and there is an Icon on the Top Right corner two lines under the service bar. It looks like a bullseye, like the blackberry maps but without the red arrow in the middle. Also, i do not know if this is making my battery drain fast but it does not even last 6 hours in full charge and is making my phone go very slow and think a lot.
Thank you for your help.

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
It sounds like the GPS icon...but, to be sure, Is it one of these?

Ummm...so are you confirming that is indeed the icon? Does it have the ))) or not?
I don't know on your specific BB model nor your OS level (which you didn't say), but on mine, it's here:
and it contains three settings...configure those as per your desires.

Hmmm...from that and from what I know of 3 separate settings, I've no idea what you may have done. For instance, on mine, there is no "off" setting for the GPS per se...
And, even when I do set mine to what I consider the closest to "off" (as follows):
I still have the bulls eye, but no longer the )))
So, with that, I can't tell what you've actually done...I would say that there is no way to get rid of the actual bulls eye...it's there to tell you that you have a GPS on your BB, available for your use.

I really appreciate your help.
I have the same settings as you do. I do not have the ))), but I still have the bulls eye. I am just wondering if it is the reason why the battery is draining so quickly, a full charge lasts me 3 hours.
