    I have often as of late noticed my gps indicator in my status bar appearing for no apparent reason and if curious if there is something available that could help me track down why this is happening?

    Default For Starters...
    Go to location services in the settings app. I believe that any app that has used the gps in the last 24 hours will have a grey arrow icon next to it, and possibly a pink one if currently using it. The most efficient way to solve your problem in my opinion would be to wait until the icon turns on, then go to location settings and try turning off location services for one app at a time until the icon disappears, then you will know what app is causing the problem..
    hope this helps
