With the JPD version of Froyo there is no option to disable GPS in the Camera.  It is always on, independant from teh global GPS setting.

Any idea how this egrigous security lapse was allowed in, and how to fix it?

You are incorrect. If you disable  the gps from the dropdown bar then it should be disabled in the camera too. Tested on froyo 2.2.

Hi there,

I can confirm this same bug in the UK version of 2.2 for GalaxyS.

Even when GPS is switched off, the camera still enables it when the camera app is run.  No setting in the camera app itself to disable this.

Settings/Location and Security then unchecking BOTH the 'Use wireless networks' and the 'Use GPS satellites" worked for me. GPS Locator icon gone - and comes back again when you reactivate these services.

The phone uses WiFi to locate, as well as GPS...

Hope that works for you.

I preferred the 2.1 version where you enabled GPS for photos if you wanted it.

you are absolutely correct, this double location method was implemented to assist in pinpointing your location while in built up areas, like downtown for eg.
it is perfectly correct to turn these off if you don't want to be located in camera mode.
it's funny how we all moan when things are not the way we want.  investigate, research and solve the problem, or choose to be left behind with older firmwares and let others have all the discoveries, fun and work out problems for you.
have an objective and remember it, this will guide your processes.. Cool Wink Wink
