    Those apps finish there tasks and then go into a suspend state. So that puts us back to myth.
    Any app that uses the GPS even while supposedly in suspended state will cause the overall battery drain rate to be higher than if the apps are not running at all. Puts us back to not as much of a myth as you think it is.

    It's experience.. Read the posted article too. If you are referring to leaving your Nav/Map on just because..... Then I can understand that. But I can figure out why anyone would use the GPS continuously and not had the device plugged in or turn it off when you are done.

    I've been getting about 48 hours on a charge with light to moderate use. That got cut alot when I signed into Gamecenter and started playing Letterpress a few days ago - down to about 28 hours. So I logged out of Gamecenter and now I'm 54 hours into a charge and only around 50% percent...albeit on very light use this weekend since I've been using an iPad for most functions.

    So maybe try logging out of Gamecenter when not gaming.

    Otherwise, I keep wifi on and only activate bluetooth when I'm in the car.

    What's your best way to preserve battery for the iPhone 5 when needed?
    Mine would have to be to turn off Wifi/LTE (only when in 3G areas). I also turn off my Bluetooth but that's all the time.
