All is not fixed after the update.  I have updated and the problem is still there.   The icon still comes back and remains there.   

 

Sony are you escalating this to get resolved?  Furthermore how can we confirm that the GPS is not actaully on and tracking

Thanks mate. I was a bit worried that Sony had teamed up with NSA and some spyware had installed itself on my phone and was tracking me all around town.

Today I have updated to February security patches and the issue is still here immediately after installing process is done.

I'm very disappointed about the long time from Sony to fix this bug and I'm very worry about my privacy.

I spent a lot of money for a device and this is the result?

An answer from Sony support team will be very welcomed.

I turned off the location in System Icons then restarted the phone and turned it on again. Fixed Screenshot_20180217-202255.png
