Default How to determin cause of mystery actions?

Something is trying to implement my GPS without my direct permission. The GPS icon flashes in the top bar, even though it's not turned on. Is there an app or something that will expose the cause of this?

Some app that you installed has access to your GPS function and can turn it on. What have you installed since this behavior started?

Yes, I suspect that's the case. What I'm asking is if anyone knows of something I can install, which will tell me exactly what is going on, 'behind the scenes', on the SGP.

It is the google maps app. There is a good thread on this over at android forums in the galaxy players forum.
