Lost gps off-on icon

Tonight I somehow removed/deleted the GPS icon that is on the 1st page on the left from the home screen on my Evo. (4G, Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS) I have no idea how it happened, or where the icon went etc. I've searched through my apps and widgets and can find nothing to drag over to restore that icon. It's a real problem not being able to easily turn on-off the gps as you can imagine.

Any help would be appreciated, I'll try to upload a pic of the screen with GPS missing.

thanks,

DC

edit: For some reason the forum software isn't allowing me to upload the image from my computer. The screen is the 1st screen on the left from the main Home screen.

You can get that GPS widget back on that Sense UI screen by going to Widgets, then scroll down to Settings, open it, and tap the GPS widget. It'll be back on the Home Screen.

I was looking for this myself, and I wanted to provide the answer in case anyone else does this search. Hit + at the bottom of the screen and choose Widget. There is an arrow next to Settings. Press the arrow and then press whatever you want to add.
