...anyone found that in the manual? I've been searching for a while now and can't seem to figure it out.

Thanks, guys.

I'm not sure is possible.... there is an option in the HDMI output that let you choose either external, external + info and internal LCD + clean external.
So I believe only with an external monitor you can have the LCD off.
I just tried and even when controlling the camera over wife the LCD turns on as soon as you go in the movie mode.

Do you want to have it off for saving battery or because it is in a remote location and you don't want to illuminate the area?

I sometimes shoot in tricky places where people, when in doubt, are quick to shut you down even though you are doing nothing bad in particular. in this case that was North Korea, where I wasn't allowed to film the interior of a train.

I have no issues with the battery, which is quite good, and illumination, but currently my only option for shooting stealthily is to press the back against my chest but that's not a good shooting position. I would similarly like to disable the GPS indication on the small lower back display but also have not been able to find out how without actually disabling the GPS receiver.

It is not the best answer but you could use a piece of black paper cut exactly the size of the LCD and put some electrical tape over it it will remain lit but blackened with the paper and tape also don't forget blacken the red light in the back of the camera that remain lit when video taping and or other light source on the back of the camera.
