Verizon Moto X - Stock - 4.4.4
Only pops up every once in a while...


In my phone (Moto G running 4.4.4) this symbol appears when the phone is set to use "High Accuracy Mode" (i.e. use the GPS rather than Wi-Fi/phone network for location) and some app requests the location.

  • thanks for this answer! I couldn't figure out how to describe this icon to google...once you started talking about location, I found [forums.androidcentral.com/t-mobile-lg-g2/… which seems to confirm. – Arsinio Aug 29 '14 at 3:40
  • as a side note: any idea why the stock messaging app would request location? – Arsinio Aug 29 '14 at 3:40
