I have not found that GPS is a real drain on the battery. Now if you are running a map with it, then yes.

The 2 biggest drains are switching between 3G ans 2G looking for a signal and data intensive apps running in the background. Third on the list would be the backlight on the screen.

See the FAQ article for tips and tricks to use.
