Same as Google Latitude
Authored by: SeanAhern on May 01, '13 10:17:46AM

It would appear that Google has subsumed the background location reporting functionality from Google Latitude into its Google Search app. My battery life is identical now using Google Now as it was when I was using Google Latitude to constantly monitor and report my location.

This is NOT the same as a fine-grained GPS application polling the location. That will kill the battery in a rather short amount of time. The coarse-grained location tracking that Google Now is using still gives me slightly over a day of battery life.
