TECNO H5 CONSTANTLY SEACHING FOR GPS LOCATION

#1

I constantly get an annoying message on my Tecno h5 that GPS is searching for location. I have reset the device, format, root, disable GPS abd even installed Orbot, but without success. It is eating battery and internet bandwidth. Please advise.

I installed orbot for the hope of blocking malicious surveillance. I thought a malicious app would be overriding everything.

yes, and it seems to be at the /system level
